Our Hand Center Services

  • Cyst Removal: Hand surgery for cyst removal is a medical procedure used to eliminate benign growths such as ganglion or synovial cysts that develop in the hand. These cysts, which are typically filled with a gel-like substance, can cause discomfort, pain, or impede movement, although they can also be asymptomatic.
  • Trigger finger: Trigger finger surgery, formally known as trigger finger release surgery, is a procedure designed to address the condition known as stenosing tenosynovitis, commonly referred to as "trigger finger." This condition is characterized by one of the fingers or thumbs getting stuck in a bent position, then suddenly straightening like a trigger being pulled and released. It is caused by inflammation or nodules in the flexor tendon sheath of the finger.
  • Hand Surgery: Our expert hand surgeons are skilled in performing a variety of surgical procedures to treat conditions such as fractures, ligament injuries, nerve compression and more. With their extensive experience and advanced techniques, you can trust that your hands are in capable hands.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment: If you experience numbness, tingling or weakness in your hands and fingers, you may have carpal tunnel syndrome. Our Hand Center provides specialized care for this common condition, offering both conservative treatments and surgical options when necessary.
  • Hand Surgery for Arthritis: Arthritis can affect the small joints of the hands and wrists, leading to pain, swelling, and reduced mobility. Our hand specialists are well-versed in managing arthritis-related hand issues and can help you find relief and improved joint function.
  • Wrist Surgery: Our team of orthopedic surgeons is highly skilled in wrist surgery, addressing various wrist conditions like fractures, sprains, and chronic pain. We utilize advanced techniques to promote faster recovery and better outcomes.

Cutting-Edge Technology

Our commitment to excellence drives us to stay at the forefront of medical advancements. At the Ortho Central Hand Center, we leverage state-of-the-art technology through robotics and equipment to ensure precise diagnoses and optimal surgical outcomes.

Convenience and Accessibility

We understand the importance of easy access to quality healthcare. Located in Norman, Oklahoma, our Hand Center is conveniently accessible to residents of South-Central Oklahoma. If you're searching for a "hand specialist near me" or a "carpal tunnel specialist near me," look no further than the Ortho Central Hand Center.

To make your experience as smooth as possible, we offer patients the option to have their surgeries performed in the office rather than a surgery center.

Patient benefits from an in-office procedure:

  • Patients save money (no surgery center expenses or the expenses of using full anesthesia protocol)
  • No fasting required
  • Patients can drive themselves to the appointment
  • Patients can remain awake for the procedure (under localized anesthetic)
  • Sped-up recovery time

However, we understand that some patients would prefer to not be awake for their procedure and we do still offer surgical procedures at our surgery center as well.

Comprehensive Rehabilitation at Ortho Central

Our team is dedicated to rehabilitation and will guide you through personalized therapy programs, helping you regain strength, flexibility and function in your hands and wrists.
