If you’re considering hand surgery for an injury or chronic condition, it’s important that you choose an experienced orthopaedic surgeon to perform the procedure. While any type of surgery should be considered carefully, the hand is one of the most fragile and complex parts of the human body, and thus requires specialized care.
Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group—a division of Florida Medical Clinic—proudly offers a wide array of hand surgeries for patients in the Tampa, Florida, community. We’ve been treating patients since 1949, during which time we’ve earned a reputation for providing industry-leading care and using state-of-the-art treatment techniques.
Commonly Treated Conditions
At Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group, we can use hand surgery to treat a number of musculoskeletal conditions affecting the hands and wrists, including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Ganglion cysts
- Sports injuries
- Ulnar tunnel syndrome
What to Expect When You Visit Us
When you turn to Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group for a condition affecting your hand or wrist, we’ll speak with you about your medical history and symptoms, perform a thorough examination, and order any necessary diagnostic testing. We’ll likely first attempt to treat your condition using a combination of nonsurgical techniques, possibly including corticosteroid injections, physical therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, stem cell therapy, ultrasound therapy, or viscosupplementation (hyaluronic acid injections).
If your condition is especially severe, or if conservative treatments fail to provide relief, you’ll likely be seen by Dr. Daniel Murphy, a board-certified orthopaedic sports medicine surgeon and team physician for the New York Yankees. Dr. Murphy and his experienced team will recommend the hand surgery that’s right for your needs and walk you through the associated risks and benefits, making sure to answer any questions you might have. They’ll also let you know whether you’re a candidate for minimally invasive hand surgery, which can reduce the risk of surgical complications and shorten the amount of time needed for recovery.
