Hand, Wrist, & Elbow

A hand, wrist or elbow disorder or injury can be extremely painful and debilitating—and severely compromise your ability to carry out even the simplest everyday tasks.

Because this part of the human anatomy is so complex—the hand and wrist alone have 27 bones—it takes a specialized hand and wrist doctor to diagnose and treat the conditions that can affect it.

That’s why Spectrum Orthopaedics has a team of fellowship-trained, orthopedic physicians and surgeons, many with advanced subspecialty expertise in hand, wrist and elbow care, as well as a team of certified hand therapists—giving you and your family access to comprehensive diagnostic and treatment resources in Brunswick, Portland, and Windham.
