Treating Hand Pain and Injuries with an Orthopedic Hand Surgeon, in Pasadena, CA

Out of the 206 bones in an adult human body, nearly 20% are in the hands. These bones are small, but they do tremendously important work. The hands' small size is part of what makes a hand doctor or surgeon necessary in the treatment of hand conditions or injuries. 

These intricate structures, also full of nerves, tendons, and ligaments, are complex puzzles that require additional training and keen skills to properly treat. Dr. Annette Billings has a passion for this detailed work and would love to help you keep and restore function to your hands so that your everyday life continues to be as high-quality as possible.

Causes of Hand Pain with Surgical and Non-Surgical Treatment Options

Some common causes of hand pain include:

Hand Injuries: Whether you injure your hand in a car accident or through a DIY home repair mishap, Dr. Billings is ready and able to diagnose and treat your hand injuries.

Sports Injuries of the Hand: While a hand injury from sports may look very similar to one from another source, treating an injury with the intent to return to a specific activity can inform the kind of treatment you receive.

Arthritis: In the United States, arthritis affects about 1 in 5 adults. Just because arthritis can't be prevented or cured, doesn't mean you have to suffer unnecessarily. Improvement is possible.

Trigger Finger or Thumb: "Trigger finger" is a common term that describes when a tendon in a finger affects the range of motion. Your finger (or thumb) may be stuck [locked] in one position and then suddenly snap free to a different position, much like pulling a trigger on a gun.

Hand Fractures: Whether you simply need X-rays to ensure your hand bones are in alignment following prolonged time in a cast or a brace, or you need surgical repair, Dr. Billings addresses fractures over a wide range of severity.

Reconstructive Surgery: This is surgery that is designed to provide pain relief and improve function.
