Hand and Wrist
Advanced training and experience
No matter who you are or what you do for a living, you are always using your hands. Your hands are a very complicated part of your body, with 19 bones, 15 joints, 3 nerves, and numerous muscles and ligaments that all work together to allow you to move. If you are having a problem with them, it can stop you from doing many of your daily activities. At Hackensack Meridian Health, our treatment approach is multidisciplinary. We get input from all the medical areas that may be involved with your care so we can provide you with the most comprehensive care available—and the best possible outcomes.

If your work involves long periods at a computer keyboard, take frequent rest breaks or periodically switch to other tasks to relieve the stress on your hands and wrists.

We have many ways to help you, depending on the cause of your pain.
Some of the conditions we treat include:
