What are hand surgeons?
Stuart Linder, MD, Plastic/reconstructive Surgery, answered
Hand surgeons are specialized surgeons that take care of both non-surgical and surgical hand and forearm problems. The hand, wrist, and the forearm are areas treated by hand surgeons. Either orthopedic, general, or plastic surgeons are trained to deal with problems of the hand. Many hand surgeons may also deal with symptoms to the level of the shoulder. The most common complaints of the hand include carpal tunnel syndrome, ganglion cysts, trigger fingers, cubital tunnel syndrome, Dupuytrens Disease, and DeQuervains tendonitis. The specialized hand surgery board is referred to as the "American Society for Surgery of the Hand."
