At the Carolina Medical Center, we specialize in the comprehensive treatment of injuries and diseases of the hand and wrist. We treat post-traumatic changes (fractures, ligament injuries, tendon injuries) and degenerative changes (arthrosis, enthesopathies, tendinitis), hand deformities and birth defects. In order to identify the problem, we perform X-ray, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging.
We offer consultations with hand surgeons, specialists in orthopedics, and trauma surgery specialists with many years of treatment experience, as well as plastic, reconstructive and vascular surgeons. The cooperation of specialists in these fields allows for a full range of treatments within the hand – the most complex part of the body in terms of anatomical structure.
Our team of surgeons uses innovative medical techniques and procedures, including reconstructive surgery for extensive injuries resulting from accidents.
We also specialize in conservative treatment. We do not immobilize the limbs in ordinary casts. We use modern, lightweight and waterproof thermoplastic, resin, rigid and semi-rigid casts. The advantage of orthoses is that when removing them, there is no need to use an oscillating saw, of which children are often afraid.
Our physiotherapists dealing with hand rehabilitation use a variety of techniques, including the most effective manual therapy. It restores the muscular balance and thus the motor functions of the hand.
A qualified team and modern treatment
In our clinic, we use modern surgical techniques in hand surgery, including arthroscopy, which allows the reconstruction of damaged tissues without the need to open the joint. We use growth factors, hyaluronic acid and even stem cells to support the process of surgical treatment and in the case of degenerative changes in joints. Their aim is to slow down the degeneration of articular cartilage, reduce pain and accelerate the regeneration of damaged tissues.
Hand surgery specialists are available to:
- children and adults after trauma in case of edema, deformity, restriction of mobility;
- patients suffering from degenerative changes in the joints;
- people with symptoms of neuropathy, such as carpal tunnel syndrome (numbness of the thumb and index finger, night discomfort) and ulnar nerve entrapment (pain in the flexed elbow, numbness of the fifth finger);
- patients with tenosynovitis (de Quervain’s syndrome, snapping finger).
