Wrist Doctor in Easton

Are you suffering from wrist pain and need to see an expert orthopaedic doctor who will be able to diagnose and treat you for your particular problem? If you are looking for a highly trained wrist doctor in Easton who can help you with your wrist pain, you will do well to come and visit us at our orthopaedic practice, Sachdev Orthopaedics.

Our orthopaedic medical office’s orthopaedic surgeon and founder are Dr. Ranjan Sachdev. Dr. Sachdev has a particular interest in diseases that affect the hand. He can provide patients with diagnoses and treatments of hand problems that include treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, hand arthritis; contractures; fractures; and injuries. One common hand and arm problem that people come to see us with is carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome happens when pressure is put on the median nerve and goes through your wrist under the carpal tunnel ligament. This can cause the patient to feel pins and needles or even numbness in their fingers. Sometimes surgery is needed to help relieve the pressure on the nerve. Our wrist doctor generally does this type of surgery in Easton on an outpatient basis.

Another common hand procedure is a trapeziectomy. This surgery entails removing the trapezium, a bone in the wrist that resides at the base of the thumb. A patient with arthritis in this joint can cause severe pain, making many everyday tasks that much more challenging to perform. Sometimes patients will experience the pain on and off; sometimes, the condition will even disappear over time. However, if the pain is persistent, you may want to have an operation to remove the joint and the trapezium. A meeting with our wrist doctor in Easton will be able to provide you with a complete diagnosis and let you know the best way to treat this problem. If you choose to have surgery, it can be performed by our orthopaedic hand surgeon. After surgery, our orthopaedist may want to ensure that you do not move your thumb or wrist for a couple of weeks to allow scar tissue to fill the gap where the trapezium was removed. After the surgery, you will most likely need to see a hand therapist who will help you with your recovery. Contact us today for an appointment to see our wrist doctor in Easton regarding a wide variety of wrist pain issues. There is no reason to continue living with wrist pain when you can see our expert wrist doctor for diagnosis and top-notch treatment.
