Hand and upper extremities

We use our hands, arms and shoulders for so many tasks. Kids play sports and use their hands to write and type. When an injury or a condition causes an issue, we can help. Treating hand, arm and shoulder issues in children can help minimize any pain or issues that can keep them from growing up to be healthy adults.

Types of hand and upper extremity conditions we treat

We focus on the diagnosis and treatment of all pediatric hand, arm and shoulder issues. We treat infants, children, teens and young adults with inherited and developmental disorders as well as injuries. Some of the more common hand and upper extremity issues we see are:

Treatment options

We understand every child is different. Our doctors and staff work with you to create a treatment plan that’s right for your child’s condition. From rest and occupational therapy all the way up to surgery, we help guide you and your family to the best outcome possible for your child.
