Upper Extremity

Leading our team in upper extremity care is Dr. John Keith, Jr., who is fellowship trained in upper extremity and specializes in hand surgery. Orthopedic Specialties generally begins treatment of the upper extremity with conservative options, including physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications or injections, in order to minimize your time away from work or other activities. There are instances when the extent of the injury or condition requires immediate surgery.

Surgeries of the upper extremities, which include the hands, wrists, forearms and elbows, typically require a 3-4 week recovery period. During recovery, your physician may prescribe occupational therapy to help you regain function as quickly as possible.
