05 Dec Innovative Therapies Giving Patients a Hand
If you’ve experienced pain in your hand or wrist, you understand the frustration of trying to accomplish seemingly simple tasks. Hand and wrist issues like arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and vascular conditions can make day-to-day life extremely difficult. However, Jeffrey Kutsikovich, M.D., a hand and upper extremity specialist at the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee, says new therapies and approaches to surgery are getting patients back to full function more quickly. “We’re doing a lot of innovate work at the Institute with our therapy program. We have the ability to use evidence-based medicine to get patients moving more,” Kutsikovich said.
