Upper Extremities

Pioneers in Hand and Upper Extremity Care

Reaching, grabbing, writing, driving, lifting, or waving are all activities we take for granted. Each of these daily activities is possible because of the versatility and flexibility of the upper extremity. This area of the body is uniquely complex and includes the joints, bones and muscles of the fingers, hand, wrist, arm, elbow and shoulder.

A Leader in Minimally Invasive Procedures

The Orthopaedic & Spine Institute at Saint Agnes Hospital, a leader in minimally invasive procedures of the hand and upper extremities, has made treatment for problems like carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger fingers and other common problems easier than ever. Saint Agnes Hospital was the first to perform endoscopic carpal tunnel release in the entire Baltimore/Washington area in May 1992. Since then over five thousand people have experienced this seven minute nearly painless procedure that requires no sutures, no cast and quick return to all activities with dramatic relief of symptoms and an almost non-existent re-operation rate.

Evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of the hand require special skills. We apply our clinical expertise to establish a fast, accurate diagnosis and develop a treatment plan that fits the needs of each patient. Our team of medical professionals is experienced in treating a variety of conditions affecting the shoulder, arm, and hand. We specialize in the treatment of:

  • Soft tissue sprains, strains, and contusions
  • Overuse and traumatic injuries to the upper extremity and hand
  • Degenerative and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Impingement syndromes of the shoulder, elbow, and wrist
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Instability of the shoulder
  • Fractures, dislocations, subluxations
