… the hand

Common hand injuries include radius fractures, the boxer’s fracture (metacarpal fracture) and skier’s thumb (ligament injury at the metacarpophalangeal joint). At the orthopädie elisenhof clinic we provide predominantly surgical treatment for these, sometimes with special implants to allow for early physiotherapeutic exercises.

In cases of capsular ligament injury to the small finger joints, treatment with a short period of immobilisation and splinting is often successful.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Numbness in the hand or night-time pain can be caused by nerve constriction (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Loge de Guyon Syndrome).

In advanced cases, these may require surgery. Before this, we conduct a comprehensive neurological exam to determine nerve conduction velocity and muscle response.

Tendon treatment

Most tendon injuries also require surgical correction. Only in exceptional cases (torn extensor tendon in the distal phalanx of a finger) will conservative treatment be considered.

Come and talk to us: the orthopädie elisenhof clinic would be pleased to help solve any hand-related problems you may have.
