Hand and Wrist


The hand and wrist are extremely complex structures that work together to allow us to easily accomplish the tasks of everyday living. However, the intricate network of nerves, bones, tendons and other supporting structures make hands and wrists vulnerable to injury and exceptionally challenging to treat. When surgery is needed, it should always be done by a skilled orthopaedic hand surgeon. Capital Orthopaedics provides a range of nonsurgical and surgical procedures to treat hand and wrist pain. For example, our state-of-the-art endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery performed by Dr. Yanish results in a drastic reduction in downtime, a smaller incision, zero restrictions after the first post-op appointment and no required physical therapy.
