Hand Injuries

Hand Trauma

The importance of our hands is often taken for granted and often times an unfortunate injury that causes temporary or even permanent loss of use of one or both hands forces us to realize their importance. Our hands are one of the most intricate parts of our body, thus injuries must be treated timely and with great detail, since small disruptions in form can affect function. Therefore, it is important to have a proper evaluation by a surgeon who has completed training of a hand surgical fellowship. Dr. Hendrick has undergone plastic and microsurgery training with additional fellowship training in surgery of the Hand at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX. His experience in the high volume hospitals of the Texas Medical Center as a hand fellow have afforded him with a high skill level and ability to deal with complex issues regarding the upper extremity. From this training, Dr. Hendrick is comfortable treating traumatic injuries of the hand including:

  • Simple and complex Lacerations
  • Fractures
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Nerve injuries
  • Arterial injuries
  • Burns
  • Crush Injury
  • Replantation
