Hand, Wrist & Elbow Doctor Dahlonega, or Blairsville, Georgia
You may be surprised to learn that the hand and wrist are actually very delicate areas of the body. Your hands and wrists contain an intricate network of nerves and blood vessels, as well as bones, tendons, ligaments, and muscles, some of which extend to the elbow.
Wrist injuries, hand disorders, and elbow conditions are common and can cause pain, loss of sensation, loss of movement, and impaired function. A problem in these areas must be dealt with very carefully because of all the structures and functions involved.
At Northview Associates, you can receive the prompt appointments you need for medical care, diagnostic imaging, and outpatient surgery. Dr. David Hochschild, Dr. Alan Binkley, and our entire team are committed to providing you with streamlined care so that you may return to work or your favorite activities as quickly as possible.
Common hand, wrist, and elbow conditions and treatments include:
Carpal Tunnel Surgery
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that occurs when the median nerve in the wrist is compressed and does not function properly. Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include numbness, pain, and tingling in the fingers, wrists, and arms. Our board-certified orthopaedic surgeons are well-versed in nonsurgical and surgical treatments, including endoscopic surgery and open release for carpal tunnel syndrome.
