Hand, Wrist, and Elbow Surgery

From sitting up in bed in the morning to typing on a keyboard at work, our hands, wrists, and elbows play critical roles in virtually every movement of the body. Sometimes, as is the case with typing, these movements are repeated hundreds, if not thousands, of times a day. So, when we experience an injury or chronic condition involving our hands, wrists, or elbows, we really feel it in each and every movement. These parts of our body are simply too important to our daily function to approach treatment with anything less than an expert. Here at Alamo, we have developed expertise and experience with every kind of hand, wrist, and elbow injury imaginable, from the most common to the most complex, surgical and non-surgical treatments. Our expert surgeons have placed patient upon patient on the road to recovery. Our specialized surgeons aim to diagnose, remedy, and strengthen the area to get you back to normal strength and functionality as soon as possible.
