Orthopedic Hand Surgery Near You
Surgery can be nerve-wracking, especially when the operation is on the body’s most important set of tools. The hands allow the ease of many forms of communication as well as the basic means to take care of oneself. Without them, life can become incredibly difficult. IBJI’s experienced hand surgeons are prepared to perform any necessary surgery. Contact us at any of our Illinois locations if you need advice or believe surgery may be the best step towards a healthy hand.
When is Hand Surgery Necessary for Hand Pain Relief
Typically, an orthopedic hand surgeon will advise non-surgical alternatives, but on occasion surgery is necessary. The most common reason for going under the knife is to treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with a surgical technique called arthroscopy. Our IBJI surgeons will perform this minimally invasive surgery by making a small incision on the wrist, and then sending a camera called an endoscope into the body in order to see where damage must be treated. Once surgery is successfully completed, and pain subsides, our patients can expect an average recovery time up to twelve weeks. Recovery time is contingent on the healing process of the individual, the type of surgery and the speed in which the patient decides to address the problem. Simply put, the longer you wait, the longer your pain will linger.
