Most people will experience bone and joint pain in their lives. As your body ages, bones and joints deteriorate leaving you with all sorts of problems. Hands and wrists often take the force of injuries, including sports injuries and falls, with hand injuries accounting for nearly a quarter of workplace injuries. Hand and wrist pain can be especially problematic as it interferes with almost all daily activities.
A hand and wrist orthopaedic surgeon is specially trained in looking after the 29 bones found in the hand and wrist, as well as the tendons, muscles, and joints found there. At Summerfield Healthcare, our specialist orthopaedic department can help you identify the cause of pain or irritation, and can help you find the appropriate treatment, including medication, therapies, or surgery. No referral is needed.
Our experienced orthopaedic surgeons in Shrewsbury offer affordable treatments for hand and wrist problems without long waits for appointments or referrals. We have short appointment times that work around your schedule and allow you to see a specialist quickly and conveniently.

Palmar Dupuytren’s affects roughly 5% of the population and is a disease that affects the fascia tissue below the skin in the palms. Patients with palmar dupuytren’s experience fascia thickening, which forms knots and causes the fingers to contract towards the palm. The condition prevents you from opening your fingers and, if left untreated, can result in permanent immobility. A surgical procedure can be carried out by our hand and wrist orthopaedics team to release the contraction and restore flexion to the affected fingers.
Ganglions are fluid-filled cysts that usually form on or near joints and tendons on the wrist, hands, and fingers. Although they are usually harmless, they can start to cause pain and discomfort or make you feel self-conscious due to their appearance. Ganglion cysts can be treated by draining the fluid or removing the cyst through minor surgery. Our experienced hand and wrist orthopaedic surgeons can perform this surgery in Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton
Trigger finger is a frustrating condition that prevents a person from either straightening or bending their finger (or thumb) properly. It is caused by inflammation around the tendons in the finger and can be treated with a simple surgery to open up the space around the tendon to allow it to move freely again. A treatment plan might be put in place before surgery is recommended. Our orthopaedic specialists will be able to advise you on the best and safest course of action to restore full finger or thumb functionality.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition that is caused by pressure on the median nerve which runs down the arm and into the hand. Severe carpal tunnel syndrome can impair movement and cause a lot of pain. Our orthopaedic hand and wrist surgeons can perform a surgery known as carpal tunnel release to alleviate the pressure on the median nerve to reduce pain and restore movement.
