Hand Surgery for Patients in Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News & the Surrounding VA Areas

Hand surgery is a highly specialized discipline that requires unique technical skills. That’s because the hand is one of the most intricate parts of the human anatomy. A complex arrangement of underlying structures, including bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, blood vessels, and skin, the hand is designed to perform fine motor tasks with a high degree of precision. In order to ensure proper function, a surgeon must skillfully maintain the delicate balance of these various components while performing hand surgery. Patients with hand pain in Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, and the surrounding Virginia areas can feel confident entrusting their care to the hand specialists at Tidewater Orthopaedics.

As the only sub-specialty orthopaedic practice on the Peninsula, Tidewater Orthopaedics offers hand surgery performed by surgeons who have completed extensive education and earned additional certifications focused specifically on their area of specialty – the hand and wrist. This differentiating factor sets Tidewater apart from other orthopaedic practices in the area. Moreover, Tidewater Orthopaedics is unique in that we have the only two board-certified hand surgeons in the Hampton Roads region.

In addition to performing hand surgery, the hand specialists at Tidewater Orthopaedics in Hampton Roads can treat a variety of injuries and conditions affecting the hand and wrist, such as:
