Hand Surgery in Fayetteville Arkansas
Hand surgery is something you hope you’ll never need. In Fayetteville, Arkansas, C. Noel Henley, MD is part of a specialized team of hand surgeons ready to care for you and your family.
Our hands are frequently injured in everyday life, in sports, and at work.
Surgical procedures are often necessary to repair damage, restore function, or improve movement.
Types of Hand Surgery
Examples of structures that require specialized care and skill include tendons, nerves, blood vessels and ligaments. If not repaired properly by a hand specialist, these vital parts of your hand may never heal the right way.
Injuries that damage hands include:
- “jamming injuries”
- direct trauma (like slamming your finger in a car door)
Reconstructive hand surgery
Sometimes it’s not just acute traumatic injuries that require hand surgeon expertise.
Long-term problems like arthritis, whether rheumatoid or osteoarthritis, can destroy joints and ligaments. Sometimes joints must be replaced or even fused together to restore function and stop pain.
Other problems that develop slowly include:
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- Dupuytren’s contracture
- trigger finger
- other nerve compression problems
Other specialties of the hand surgeon
Hand surgeons almost always work on other areas of the arm, including wrists and elbows.
