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've had two surgeries directed and done by Alaska Hand-Elbow-Shoulder. I received very high quality care from the doctors and staff.
When I broke my hand, I was able to get an appointment quickly. Dr. McNamara and his staff were wonderful!
I wish there was a better way to thank you and your entire staff; front, middle, and back, for all you have done for us. Your office has set the bar incredibly high for any and all future medical professionals I will deal with in the future (hopefully not too many). Each and every member of your staff has been kind and patient, courteous and helpful in every interaction we had, for two years. Thank you all very much!
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.
This is an amazing group of folks! They know their stuff - do a great job - are a TEAM in all respects.
