Hand Wrist & Elbow

The Hand and Upper Extremity Center at TOC brings North Alabama’s first and largest team of hand specialists providing state-of-the-art diagnosis, treatment and care for upper extremity disorders.

Specially trained and board certified physicians and their support staff use state-of-the-art procedures to diagnose, manage and correct conditions which can literally run from the fingertips to the elbow.

Treatment of the hand, wrist and elbow is a highly specialized field that deals with a broad set of conditions and symptoms. Many of these are treated with non- surgical approaches such as medications, injections, and therapy.

When surgery is indicated, advanced and minimally invasive procedures are performed on an outpatient basis and without a hospital stay.
