Hand & Wrist

Did you know that one of the distinguishing features of humans is our amazing ability to perform so many different actions with our hands? Opposable thumbs work together with fingers and other anatomical structures of the arm to allow us to engage in sophisticated activities.

For professional athletes, writers, mechanics, package handlers, and other workers whose income relies on the use of their hands and arms, any hand or wrist injury could mean loss of income.

Colorado Center of Orthopaedic Excellence has three highly experienced hand surgeons on staff: Dr. Karl Larsen, Dr. Ky Kobayashi and Dr. Gregg Martyak. After they make a diagnosis, they will design a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan based on patient-centered results to eliminate the source of your pain, stiffness, and limited mobility.

Consisting of over 120 ligaments, 27 bones, 29 joints, and a network of delicate nerves, the hand requires intricate knowledge to diagnose and treat. Our specialists have received advanced training in conditions affecting the hands and wrists, including:

Our Colorado Springs hand surgeons routinely perform endoscopic and open release carpal tunnel surgery, joint replacement surgery, microvascular and peripheral nerve surgery, wrist fracture surgery, hand reconstruction, and minimally invasive techniques to ensure you experience complete healing.

Don’t let a hand or arm condition keep you from working or enjoying your favorite activities any longer. Call us at (719) 623-1050 or request an appointment online with one of our specialists today.
