Writing, driving, lifting, and waving are activities that we all take for granted. Each of these simple daily activities is possible because of the flexibility and versatility of our hands, forearms, and elbows. The intricate design and the frequent use each day can make the upper extremity highly susceptible to injury and disease. CU Orthopaedics has fellowship trained hand surgeons that are experts in diagnosing and treating this complex and important part of your body. The Hand Center is staffed by orthopaedic hand specialists and certified hand therapists providing a multidisciplinary approach to the upper extremity. CU Orthopaedics also offers a pediatric hand and upper extremity specialist providing services for congenital disorders and injuries at The Children's Hospital.
