Nonsurgical Treatments

Rest assured, your hand surgery team will treat your condition without surgery whenever possible. Learn about nonsurgical orthopedic care at Essentia Health.

Certified Hand Therapists

Enjoy coordinated, comprehensive care for your hands, wrists, and fingers at Essentia. Our doctors and certified hand therapists (CHTs) work together to provide the best care for your condition, preferences, and goals. You may receive expert nonsurgical treatments from an Essentia Health CHT, or you may see your CHT before and/or after surgery.

Surgery for Hands, Wrists, & Fingers

If you and your doctor decide that surgery is the best treatment for your condition, benefit from our experience performing procedures such as:

  • Endoscopic carpal tunnel release (ECTR), also known as carpal tunnel surgery
  • Joint fusions
  • Knuckle joint replacement
  • Skin grafting and soft tissue reconstruction
  • Tendon repair
  • Trigger finger release
  • Vascular hand surgery
  • Wrist arthroscopy
  • Wrist joint replacement (wrist arthroplasty)

Carpal Tunnel Surgery

If nonsurgical treatments don’t ease pain or weakness from carpel tunnel syndrome, ask about endoscopic carpal tunnel release. In this procedure, your doctor uses a thin, flexible tube with a camera on the end and thin surgical instruments to release pressure on your nerve and relieve your symptoms. With endoscopic treatment, you may benefit from less pain, a shorter recovery, and a faster return to work.
