Hand, Wrist, and Elbow Service

The Mount Sinai Hand, Wrist, and Elbow Service provides advanced orthopaedic treatment to eliminate pain and restore function for various conditions involving the upper extremity, from a finger fracture to carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. Treatments range from minimally-invasive procedures to the most advanced reconstructive surgeries.

  • Arthroscopic surgery
  • Fracture management
  • Carpal tunnel release
  • Nerve release/reconstruction (e.g., brachial plexus)
  • Treatment of stroke and paralysis due to nerve injury
