Did you know the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center can help with hand pain?


A woman feel pain in the middle of the handIf you’ve ever had a cosmetic procedure done at Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center, you know you can trust Dr. Weinstein and his staff to give you the beautiful skin, face, and body that you’ve always wanted. But did you know that you can also count on Dr. Weinstein for help with painful hand conditions?

What hand conditions can be treated?

Your plastic surgeon can help with many different hand problems. Here are just a few:

• Carpal tunnel syndrome. The carpal tunnel is on the palm side of the hand. The median nerve runs through this “tunnel,” and if it is too narrow it can compress the nerve. Patients with carpal tunnel syndrome may have tingling or numbness. Surgery can help to relieve the pressure on the median nerve.

• Rheumatoid arthritis. This is a chronic disease that results in painful and inflamed joints. Joints may also be swollen and stiff. Surgery to remove tissue from inflamed joints, repositioning tendons, or even implanting artificial joints can help patients to find relief.

• Dupuytren’s contracture. Surgery is the only treatment for this disorder in which the skin and tissue on the palm side of the hand develop scar-like tissue that makes it difficult for the hand to move and function normally. After surgery, the fingers and hand can move more freely.

What happens after hand surgery?

Every hand surgery is different, and so the recovery time involved can vary from patient to patient. Your hand will have to remain immobilized for some time and you will need time to heal before you can get back to your regular activities. Besides medication to help you feel more comfortable while you heal, you might also be prescribed therapy such as hand exercises, heat and massage therapy, splinting, traction, and/or electrical nerve stimulation.

You don’t realize how delicate the hand is and how important good hand function is until you develop a problem. Don’t worry, though – you can count on Dr. Weinstein and the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, to relieve hand pain and help to restore hand function.
