Hand and Wrist
Our hand surgeons care for acute injuries and chronic conditions of the hand, wrist and upper extremities. They work closely with MOI hand therapists to provide a comprehensive plan for rehabilitation of hand injuries and conditions.
At the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute, we are focused, specialized, and uncompromising in our efforts to provide the best experience to all those who require care for their upper extremities. We hold the belief that your hands are of the utmost importance - whether you are a professional athlete, weekend sports enthusiast, musician or artist, laborer, surgeon, clerical worker or student.
We are dedicated to providing you with complete care from first evaluation through total rehabilitation. To make an appointment, please call (573) 882-BONE.
