Many of our daily activities are possible because of the versatility and flexibility of your upper extremities. Our surgeons have the experience and dedication to keep your fingers, hands, wrists, arms, elbows and shoulders functioning.
The Ascension Saint Agnes Orthopedic & Spine Institute is a leader in minimally invasive procedures of the hand and upper extremities and has made treatment for problems like carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger fingers and other common problems easier than ever. Saint Agnes Hospital was the first to perform endoscopic carpal tunnel release in the entire Baltimore/Washington area in May 1992. Since then, over 5,000 people have experienced this seven-minute, nearly painless procedure that requires no sutures or no cast and offers a quick return to all activities with dramatic relief of symptoms and an almost non-existent re-operation rate.
Evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of the hand require special skills. We apply our clinical expertise to establish a fast, accurate diagnosis and develop a treatment plan that fits the needs of each patient.
