Numbness in the hand and fingers

Numbness in the hand and fingers

Common causes of numbness include carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome and injuries to the nerves, including brachial plexus injuries. The patient may also experience tingling sensation, burning sensation and even pain in the distribution of the affected nerve. Left untreated, one may experience weakness or even complete paralysis.

Pain in the hand and wrist

Pain in the hand and wrist

Common causes of pain include trigger finger, De Quervain’s tenosynovitis, inflammatory and degenerative arthritis. Hand and wrist pain can also be due to repetitive strain, trauma and sports injuries resulting in ligamentous injuries, fractures and dislocations of the hand and wrist. The patient may also experience swelling, limited mobility and progressive deformity of the hand and wrist. Left untreated, one may experience problems with activities of daily living with decreased quality of life.

Lumps in the upper limb

Lumps in the upper limb

Common diagnoses for lumps include ganglion cyst, lipoma, sebaceous cyst, pigmented villonodular synovitis and enchondroma which are usually benign tumours. Less common diagnoses include inflammatory tenosynovitis, gout and cancerous growths. Before leaving these growths alone, one should have them assessed by a specialist to exclude malignancy which if left untreated, may result in pain, loss of sensory and motor function, amputation and may even become life threatening.

Conditions We Treat

At Advanced Hand, Wrist and Nerve Centre, we see a wide range of disorders affecting the hand, wrist and upper limb and strive to provide a comprehensive approach to the evaluation and management of these conditions. Besides specialising in effective hand surgery and other treatments, we also recognise the importance of pain management and occupational therapy to relieve the symptoms and allow you to enjoy various activities that involve the use of the hand. As hand surgeons, we understand that certain conditions hinder an individual to live his/her life to the fullest. It is our promise to help you achieve that and beyond by coming up with an accurate diagnosis and prompt treatment. Let us help get your life back on track.
