The surgeons at Memorial Hermann Surgical Hospital First Colony specialize in treating congenital, acquired, traumatic injuries, and other common conditions of the hand and upper extremity. Dedicated to providing excellent quality care to our patients, our specialists use the most advanced treatments for common hand and arm problems including minimally invasive surgical techniques.
The hand, comprised of a complicated organization of bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, nerves, vessels, and muscles, is one of the most complex and intricate areas of the human body. Allowing for more than just the performance of everyday tasks, our hands allow us to experience and enjoy the world. Simple pleasures such as holding hands with a loved one, playing a musical instrument, using technology, participating in sports, or feeling the grass under your fingertips are dependent on normal hand function.
Hand injuries and disorders can result in pain, loss of sensation, loss of movement, impaired functions, loss of productivity, and reduced quality of life.

- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Cubital tunnel syndrome
- Trigger finger
