Hand Surgery at Specialty Surgical Center
At Specialty Surgical Center in Sparta, New Jersey, patients have access to outpatient hand surgery services. Hand pain and dysfunction can dramatically decrease quality of life as our hands often help us be independent through driving and working, and even in basic tasks such as feeding and dressing ourselves.
At Specialty Surgical Center, one of the most common conditions treated is carpal tunnel. This is a painful condition that comes from the compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist. The median nerve contributes to the sensations of the palm side of the hand and some of the small muscle control of the fingers and thumb. The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway that the median nerve runs through, and through overuse, this passageway can narrow, which puts pressure on the median nerve. Carpal tunnel release surgery is performed at Specialty Surgical Center to alleviate pain due to carpal tunnel syndrome, and consists of surgically cutting the band of tissue that is located around the wrist to allow for relief of pressure on the median nerve.
For those patients who suffer from Dupuytren’s Contracture, a condition that causes the fingers to contract inward, a fasciotomy at Specialty Surgical Center may help. Fasciotomy surgeries may also be used for other conditions, and generally involves surgically cutting tissue that has thickened over time, causing the contracture.
Other hand procedures at Specialty Surgical Center include nerve and tendon repair of the hand and skin grafts.
