The hand and wrist contains 29 bones, 29 joints, 123 ligaments and 34 muscles. Together these structures combine to allow for both strength and the fine manipulation that makes our hands so useful. The complex nature of the hand and wrist also makes this part of our body delicate and prone to injury and pain.
If you have a condition that affects your hands or wrists you need the help of a hand specialist with experience and specialized training in hand and wrist surgery. Our specialists are wholly focused on treating fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis and a host of other conditions of the hand and wrist, with both surgical and more conservative options.
We are dedicated to providing the best and most efficient care for your unique situation. You will benefit from Summit Medical Group’s multidisciplinary approach. Our Orthopedics Department is integrated with other specialties, such as rheumatology, physiatry, physical therapy and occupational therapy. This helps to ensure your hands and wrists receive the care they need and deserve.
I saw Dr. Zornitzer for surgery on my hand after a dog bite infected my bone. He was very thorough and patients and answered all of my questions. I unfortunately needed second surgery and once again was very pleased.
