Why Choose Wake Forest for Hand, Shoulder and Elbow Care?
Surgery can be a disruptive event, especially when it involves your hands and arms and a long recovery. At Wake Forest Baptist, we offer the latest minimally invasive and non-surgical treatments available today to make sure you experience as little pain as possible and get great results.
We believe in using minimally invasive treatments whenever possible. Our hand, shoulder and elbow specialists are well known for their work in this field. In the 1980s, they performed some of the first minimally invasive procedures to treat wrist fractures, chronic pain and arthritis.
Our specialists have developed new ways to use medicines to treat hand, shoulder and elbow conditions. Their work has helped some patients avoid surgery entirely. We're using botulinum toxin - commonly known as Botox - to treat upper limb spasticity and collagenase injections to treat Dupuytren's disease.
