Hand Surgery

Surgery can be nerve-wracking, especially when the operation is on something as fragile and intricate as the hands. The hands enable 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 the right surgery to help you regain the use of your body’s most important set of tools. 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 pursuing a surgical option is to treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome through arthroscopy. Our IBJI surgeons will perform this minimally invasive surgery by making a small incision on the wrist, 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 near twelve weeks. Recovery time is contingent on the healing process of the individual, the type of surgery, and the speed at which the patient decides to address the problem. 

Orthopedic Hand Surgery at IBJI

Put your hands in ours for your hand surgery. IBJI’s orthopedic hand surgeons know the hand’s anatomy as if it’s the back of their own. Depending on the fundamental cause of the problem, hand surgery may be necessary for those who have been diagnosed with the following.

Other common procedures our surgeons perform on a patient are:

  • Joint Drainage and Debridement
  • Joint Replacement
  • Nerve Repairs
  • Synovectomy
  • Tendon Repairs
  • Trigger Finger Release
