Hand & Wrist
Our hands are vital for many everyday activities during work and leisure. To do these activities, our hands require sensations and movements such as joint motion, tendon gliding, and muscle contraction. When a problem takes place in the hand, attention must be given to all the different types of tissues that make functions of the hand possible.
Hand surgery is the field of medicine that deals with problems of the hand, wrist, forearm, elbow, & bicep. Hand surgeons care for these problems with and without surgery. They devote their time to examining, treating, and studying hand and upper-extremity ailments, and are specially trained to operate when necessary.
Dr. Besh is a board-certified hand surgeon.
Why visit a hand surgeon?
If you have an eye problem, you see an eye doctor. If you have a heart problem, you see a cardiologist. If you have a hand problem, you see a hand surgeon. It’s that simple. If you have pain in your fingers, hand, wrist, elbow, or have other upper-extremity related concerns, you may want to consult a hand surgeon.
Dr. Besh brings over 11 years of experience specializing in the surgical and non-surgical treatment of hand, wrist, forearm, and elbow conditions for patients of all ages and activity levels.
What can I expect from a hand surgeon?
Not every visit to a hand surgeon results in hand surgery. Hand surgeons often recommend non-surgical treatment options to assist you. Sometimes they may refer you to a hand therapist for more treatment.
