Hand and Upper Extremity

Dr. Shumway and patient

The hands, wrists and elbows are responsible for performing nearly all daily tasks – from typing on a computer, to picking up a cup of coffee, to daily hygiene. When injury or disease affects the bones, muscles and nerves, it can be impossible to accomplish the simplest of tasks and overall quality of life may be affected.
