Swift Institute - Hand & Upper Extremity

We rely on our fingers, hands, and elbows to perform daily tasks, from brushing our teeth to doing our jobs. When hands don’t function properly, diagnosing and treating the condition accurately is essential.

Whether you suffer from an injury, repetitive motion issues, or a degenerative condition, our highly skilled upper extremity specialists use the latest techniques to diagnose and treat your concerns. Among the hand issues we treat are carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, ganglion cysts, and tendon and nerve injuries.

Tennis and golfer’s elbow are the shared names in sports medicine for painful conditions caused by elbow overuse. But as painters, mechanics, cooks, and others know firsthand, these ailments flare up whenever repetitive motions are part of the job. Whatever upper extremity condition you face, we offer a full range of specialized care, including injection therapy, hand therapy, minimally invasive surgery, and surgical options for complex conditions, to get you back to activity. Swift Institute. Better Healthcare. Better Life.
