Hand & Upper Extremity

Hand & Upper Extremity

Hand & Upper Extremity Reaching, grabbing, writing, driving, lifting, or waving - all activities that we take for granted. This area of the human body is uniquely complex and includes the joints, bones, and muscles of the fingers, hand, wrist, arm, elbow and shoulder. Its intricate and mobile design coupled with the use and abuse sustained each day can make this region of the body highly susceptible to injury.

At Barton's orthopedic offices in South Lake Tahoe, Stateline, Round Hill/ Zephyr Cove, Incline Village, and Carson City, clinical expertise is applied to quickly establish an accurate diagnosis and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from upper-extremity pain or discomfort.

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Soft tissue sprains, strains, and contusions

  • Impingement syndromes of the shoulder, elbow, and wrist
