Fortunately, our well-respected surgeon, Dr. Nicholas Fiore, MD, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of hand sports injuries and wrist injuries.

He holds credentials from Duke University, Ross University School of Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine, and more.

Common Sport Injuries

The strength and dexterity of the hand and wrist depends greatly upon an intricate system of bones, joints, tendons, muscles, nerves, and vessels all working together. Sports require an array of movements that could injure one or more of these components. Crushing, bending, pulling, twisting, straining, or simple repetitive motions can cause both minor and major injuries, which can require treatments ranging from splinting and medication to invasive surgery.

Some common sports injuries include tendonitis, wrist fractures, hand fractures, finger jams, dislocated fingers, and ligament tears at the base of the thumb. These injuries can not only affect your game, but your ability to perform such simple tasks as making a fist, typing an email, fastening a button, holding a fork, or manipulating a key into a lock.

Diagnosing Sports Injuries

Properly diagnosing and treating these sports injuries could not only restore hand function more quickly, but it could also prevent long-term issues. With three convenient office locations and in-office x-ray machines, Dr. Fiore can assess and treat your injury with state-of-the-art equipment and unbeatable care.
