Burns and wounds are not the only injuries healed at Joseph M. Still Burn Centers, Inc. Our team of plastic and reconstruction specialists offers cosmetic, emergency and elective surgeries, including breast enhancement or reconstruction, hand and extremity operations as well as other procedures.
Hand and upper extremity injuries account for one-third of all emergency room injuries and are the most common disabling work injuries. Meanwhile, burning and crushing injuries to the hand are one of the likeliest injuries for children under the age of six.
In recent years, JMS has assembled a team of hand specialists who can treat cases ranging from traumatic de-gloving injuries to simple sprains. They are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for emergency cases or consultations. With 29 major and minor bones, 29 joints, 123 ligaments, 48 nerves and 35 muscles, the hand and lower arm are complex areas that requires a skilled assessment and treatment plan.
If you are experiencing pain in your upper-extremities, including wrist, hand, and fingers, contact our office to schedule an appointment today. They can offer a wealth of treatments beyond surgery, including medication, topical treatment, injections, or monitored therapy. The specialties of the JMS Hand Team include:
