About Hand Surgery

You may be surprised to learn that the hand is actually a very delicate area of the body. Your hand contains an intricate network of nerves and blood vessels, as well as tendons, ligaments, muscles, skin, and bones. Your hands perform countless coordinated motions each day and provide you with constant sensory information to help you learn about your environment.

Hand injury and hand disorders can cause pain, loss of sensation, loss of movement, and impaired function. A problem in the hand must be dealt with very carefully because of all the structures and functions involved. This is why hand surgery is a specific field of orthopedic medicine and requires an experienced expert. 

As a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Steve Meadows has completed specialized fellowship training in hand surgery and passed the national examination for the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, making him a well-qualified hand surgeon.
