Hand and Wrist Surgery in Houston, TX
The role that our hands play in our everyday lives can be easily overlooked until an injury occurs. An intricate system of nerves, muscles, tendons, and bones make up your hands, so surgical procedures must be meticulous in order to correct a hand injury. Diseases and medical abnormalities can also affect the hands, limiting their ability to function properly. If you live in Houston, hand surgery is often your only option for you to recover your motor skills and restore independence. As a local Houston hand surgeon, Dr. Nicholas Fiore can help those who have exhausted non-surgical options to renew hand function.

Some of Our Specialties
A common condition caused by the compression of the median nerve in the hand and wrist, carpal tunnel syndrome is a treatable ailment with a range of symptoms. Often starting as a tingling, burning or numbness in the hand (generally at night), carpal tunnel syndrome can eventually grow in severity, decreasing a personÃs grip strength and affecting their ability to form a fist, grasp objects and perform certain tasks.

Hand fractures are commonly occurring injuries, resulting from the multitude of functions we put our hands through each and every day. We use our hands to grasp and hold onto objects, open and close doors, hammer nails into walls, catch footballs and baseballs, protect us from impact, and even catch ourselves when we fall.

Nerves carry messages back and forth from the body to the brain. Some control motion while others control sensory functions which allow us to feel such sensations as heat, cold, pressure and pain. When our nerves are injured, either through crushing, stretching or cutting injuries, motion and/or sensation can be impaired or lost. Not all nerve injuries cause permanent damage nor do they all require treatment or hand surgery.
