Hand and wrist health is important! Almost everything we do relies on our ability to use our hands, wrists, and arms. We understand how important they are, and how difficult and frustrating life can be when you re injured. That s why we take hand, wrist, and arm health so seriously. You deserve the very best treatment if you re injured. Understanding the comprehensive approach required to take care of wrists, hands, and arms, we work tirelessly to offer the most advanced, state-of-the-art, and complete care possible. In addition, we understand the somewhat hopeless feeling you can get when you re waiting for the doctor to tell you what s going to happen. Understanding your concerns, we're committed to letting patients know exactly what we're thinking, what we're going to do, when we're going to do it, what you can expect at the time of surgery, and what s going to happen afterwards. That s why the SOS Hand + Wrist Center at Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists, P.C., is the premier provider of specialty hand and wrist care in the U.S. In addition, we're dedicated to providing you with Complete Care. Complete Care is the idea that everything you need is provided in-house, whether it's a scan, a test, or a service. No more running around to different doctors. Nobody likes doing that. Lead by four of the most skilled physicians in the field, our 6,000 square foot facility is equipped with state-of-the-art imaging, EMG testing/nerve conduction studies, on-site casting, digital X-ray, electronic medical health records, on-site state-of-the-art MRI imaging as well as customized hand splints, pain management and hand therapy services.
