Hand and Finger Fractures
Sometimes because of an injury during competitive sports or even due to trauma, fractures to the bones in the hands (metacarpals) or to those of the fingers (phalanges) may occur. These injures may involve not only the bones, but also the joints, tendons, ligaments or even the ends of the finger or fingernail. Some of these conditions may need to be treated with a scheduled outpatient surgery, and some can be managed with a short period of rest and splinting. A careful and thorough evaluation, discussion and examination with the physicians at South Florida Hand Surgery is the first step in helping you return to the action.
