Hand and Upper Extremity Center
The Hand and Upper Extremity Center at MetroHealth provides expert care and diagnosis for complex hand, wrist, shoulder, elbow and nerve problems in adults and children.
Our providers are experienced orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, and nurses. They comprise a comprehensive group that manages and coordinates care before, during and after an injury.
Hand and upper extremity injuries can complicate daily life and negatively impact work, hobbies, or even simple tasks. Our fingers, hands, arms and shoulders are used for almost everything we do, and are constantly in motion — until pain, numbness or disability brings them to a halt.
To schedule an appointment by phone, please call 216-778-HAND (4263). You can also request an appointment online.
Same-day appointments are available at select locations.
Our hand and upper extremity specialists offer treatments for a number of hand, shoulder, and wrist conditions, including:
- Carpal tunnel
- Trigger finger
- Sports-related injuries
- Hand and tendon lacerations
- Shoulder replacement
- Rotator cuff tears
- Hand, shoulder, and elbow rehabilitation
