Hand/Wrist Arthritis Surgery And Treatment For Glens Falls & Saratoga Springs
At some point in their lives, many people will be touched by some form of Arthritis. This debilitating condition is caused by inflammation of the joints, causing stiffness and pain usually described as aching that worsens with age. Even if you have been affected by this painful condition, it does not have to control your life.
When you make your appointment today for a consultation with experienced hand surgeon Dr. Juan Garcia, he will personally examine you. The two of you will discuss your choices for top-level treatment and reconstructive surgery to improve your range of motion and significantly ease your discomfort. Osteoarthritis – the normal wear and tear on your joints, and Rheumatoid Arthritis – an autoimmune disorder that can lead to damage and destruction of the joints, are the two most common types of arthritis. Both can severely affect the hands and wrists. Arthritis can also be caused by uric crystals, infections, or other diseases.
