Hand and Peripheral Nerve Surgery at UMMC

Physician examines hand.At UMMC, we offer comprehensive care in hand and peripheral nerve surgery for both children and adults. Our team of dedicated clinical care providers hold faculty appointments in the Division of Plastic Surgery and Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation, and includes subspecialists in hand surgery, plastic surgery, occupational therapy, pediatric physical therapy, and advanced practice nursing.

We treat the entirety of adult elective (non-emergency) and traumatic (emergency) conditions of the hand, upper extremity, and peripheral nerves, offering state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive techniques (i.e. endoscopic carpal tunnel release), fracture repair (i.e. broken fingers, hand, and wrist), advanced reconstructive microsurgery (i.e. nerve, vessel, and free flap reconstruction), as well as the technically-demanding and highly-complex nerve transfer procedures to restore hand function after traumatic injury.

At the Children's of Mississippi Congenital Hand Clinic, our team treats the full spectrum of pediatric congenital hand differences ranging from removing extra digits (polydactyly) to separating webbed fingers (syndactyly) to reconstructing and creating functional thumbs (pollicization). Your child will be cared for by a comprehensive group of pediatric healthcare professionals including a plastic surgeon and hand surgeon, pediatric nurse practitioner, pediatric occupational therapists, pediatric physical therapist, and a nursing team coordinator.
