Although hand injuries and conditions are fairly common, they require specialized care to preserve normal function.
Wrist injuries or wrist arthritis can make it difficult to position the hand for tasks—impeding everyday life.
Elbow injuries, over-use, or wear and tear with instability may cause inflammation and radiating pain to occur.
Shoulder injuries can easily compromise both mobility and stability, and lead to increased pain and functional loss.
While fractures and dislocations are common injuries, they often require prompt conservative or surgical management.

I am very pleased with Dr. Paisley's work. My shoulder replacement has been a great success.
Thanks to each of you for your kindness and professionalism! Fabulous results!
Dr. Mac is awesome. He repaired my shoulder a few years ago and it feels great, my scar is hardly visible. His staff are the best.
When I broke my hand, I was able to get an appointment quickly. Dr. McNamara and his staff were wonderful!
Dr. Paisley is simply the BEST! He did my husbands shoulder reconstruction, when others wouldn't even touch it! What an amazing Doctor and man!
