Treatment of Hand, Wrist, and Upper Limb Nerves at Blackrock Clinic

Patients suffering from complaints of the hand, wrist, upper limb nerves, can be treated at Blackrock Clinic under the care of specialising Upper Limb and Plastic consultants, with the support of physiotherapy Hand Therapists and Occupational Therapists. Surgery is not always required, but if it is, hand surgery can usually be treated as day case.

Anatomy

The anatomy of the hand is complex, as outlined in the educational video below. The human hand, including the wrist, contains 54 bones, so fractures are a common problem:

  • Finger fracture
  • Wrist fracture
  • Scaphoid fracture
  • Metacarpal fracture

Some other complaints regularly treated here are:

  • Ganglion cyst removal
  • Dupuytrens Contracture
  • Carpal Tunnel release surgery
  • Trigger finger

Diagnostics Hand and Wrist image

The Consultant diagnostic team works closely with the Consultant surgeons to get a swift diagnosis, and the very best treatment plan for all their patients. Scanning, x-ray and Neurophysiolology tests (Nerve Conduction Studies; EMG; EEG) are the usual path for hand and wrist patients.

Please visit our Outpatients Services section on this website for further information.

Speedy appointments are available withy referral, and there is a walk in service for X-rays.
