Hand & Wrist Conditions

The hand consists of the wrist, palm and fingers and is essential for everyday functional living. Each hand contains 27 bones and over 100 muscles and ligaments. The wrist, which contains eight small bones linked together by ligaments, is a complex joint that bridges the hand to the forearm. Issues with the hand and wrist are common and can affect bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Underlying conditions such as arthritis can also cause stiffness, numbness and contracture.

At London Hand & Wrist Specialists we have a team of experienced Hand & Wrist Consultants that are specialists within their field and able to treat a variety of hand and wrist conditions. The clinic is experienced at dealing with all hand and wrist problems including trauma and sporting injuries.
