When injury or disease threatens the functionality and viability of your hands and arms, it’s important to seek the best medical care possible.

With a combined 26+ years of experience, the upper extremity specialists at Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group are fully equipped with the appropriate resources to accurately diagnosis and successfully treat a simple tendon release or the most complex injuries of the arm, hand, wrist, or elbow. Our physicians also specialize in treating complex cases of nerve damage and will make every effort possible to help lower your pain and get you back to your beloved activities as quickly as possible.

Treatment for hand and upper extremity conditions typically begins with conservative options, however in some cases surgery may be deemed necessary.
