Hand Surgeon in Dallas TX
Hand surgery is a broad term in medicine that deals with problems of the hand, wrist, and forearm. The orthopedic, plastic, or general surgeons having additional hand surgery training are referred to as hand surgeons. They perform hand surgery and seek to restore hand and finger function. Many hand surgeons also diagnose and care for shoulder and elbow problems.
North Texas Hand Center, inaugurated in January 2009, serves patients of all ages. We are highly committed to providing the most personal and individualized care while using the latest technology and innovation. We let the patient and physician take decisions for treatment together after a thorough evaluation and discussion about all of the surgical and nonsurgical options available.
