Treatments
24 HR Emergency Care for Hand Injuries
Our team of hand surgeons are on call roster in Farrer Park Hospital’s 24 HR Emergency Clinic​ to tend to any acute injuries of the hand and wrist. These will range from relatively minor crush injury of the fingertips to more complex wounds affecting underlying tendons, nerves and arteries, to complete amputations of limbs. 

Immediate Hand Surgery Care 
Many of the trauma to the upper limb require urgent attention. Early reduction of finger and wrist fractures minimizes pain and deformity. Early attention to hand infections will minimize tissue loss and preserve function. 

Comprehensive Hand Surgery Care 
Hand surgery treatment process starts with a detailed history and clinical examination before our hand surgeons recommend individualized treatment for each patient. Many of the hand conditions are treated conservatively with activity modification, therapy or medication. Surgery can be the best option for some instances and our hand surgeons will help you understand your diagnosis and achieve the best outcome.

Hand Therapy 
This important aspect of hand surgery involves guided mobilization for hand surgery patients and the use of protective splints for rehabilitation. Our hand surgeons will oversee the rehabilitation process and you will be referred to therapists when required. 

Prosthesis 
Prosthesis complete the range of expertise a hand surgery service will provide. They improve the body image of the patients with deformities.
