St. Catherine Hospital

The Hand Center

The Hand Center is the area's foremost program dedicated to the treatment of hand pain and injury. Our network of specially trained physicians, nurses, therapists and skilled healthcare professionals believes in early diagnosis, treatment and preventative education.

We diagnose and treat all kinds of hand conditions - from the common to the complex. Every day, we treat the effects of disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome and the pain and suffering caused by diseases such as arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Each patient, each situation, is unique. Medication may be all that's necessary. Often, therapy is the best treatment. In some cases, surgery may even be required. Whatever your condition might be, you don't have to learn to live with the pain.

If you experience a hand injury, at home or at work, you can reach us 24 hours a day through the Emergency Department. After an initial exam, one of our physicians who specializes in the treatment of hand problems will provide follow-up care. If occupational therapy is necessary, our therapists who are specially trained in hand rehabilitation will coordinate care with your employer and your physician.

Whether you sprain your wrist at work or suffer from nagging arthritis, you'll receive diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and preventative education - our comprehensive package of services.

We'll be happy to give you a hand!
