Hand and Upper Extremity

We depend on our hands, wrists, arms and shoulders more than we might realize. Any problem with these joints can make daily activities come to a screeching halt.

At Indiana Regional Medical Center (IRMC) Orthopedics, our team specializes in treating issues that affect the hands, wrists and upper extremities. We focus on getting you back to the life you enjoy.

Shoulder and hand conditions we treat

No matter what's causing your discomfort, you can expect considerate, personalized care at IRMC.

We treat a variety of hand and upper extremity concerns, including:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Degenerative and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Fractures, dislocations and subluxations.
  • Overuse and traumatic injuries.
  • Rotator cuff tears.
  • Shoulder instability.
  • Sprains, strains and contusions.

Your initial appointment at IRMC Orthopedics is the first step toward feeling better. We'll take a medical history and do a physical exam. X-rays are available in the office. And we can schedule lab work, an MRI or a CT scan as needed. All this information will help us make an accurate diagnosis.

The orthopedic team also works closely with experts from other areas of IRMC, including physical and occupational therapists, rheumatologists, physiatrists, sports medicine specialists and pain management experts. We access all the expertise needed to determine possible next steps. Then we work closely with you to determine what therapy is right for you.

Surgery and other treatments we offer

We treat the whole person, not just the hand or shoulder. And we try conservative treatments like physical therapy and pain management before turning to surgery. But when surgery is the best option, you can be confident in our team's expertise.

IRMC's orthopedic surgeons are specially trained in the surgical treatment of upper-extremity problems and pain. Two of our surgeons have a special interest in shoulder surgery. They use the latest techniques in this complex procedure, including reverse total shoulder replacement.

We will provide one-on-one education before your procedure so you know what to expect. And no matter what type of treatment you need, it will be provided with compassion and expertise.
