Hand Doctor

As the premier orthopedic and neurosurgical providers for Vancouver, Portland, Lake Oswego, and the surrounding areas for over 50 years, Rebound Orthopedics & Neurosurgery offers exceptional hand care from our fellowship-trained and board-certified hand doctors so you can rebound.

The hands are complex structures that require highly specialized care from an experienced doctor. Because the fingers and hands are so frequently used, pain in that area can compromise a patient's activity level and quality of life, whether it is due to a small injury or a serious hand condition. Patients should seek the advice of an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hand and wrist pain. They will explain the injury or condition and the available treatment options and then work with the patient to determine the best recovery plan, personalized according to his or her needs and goals.

With a commitment to help patients regain their health and return to their active lifestyles as quickly as possible, we have developed our Online Guide to Hand and Upper Extremity Care to provide patients with further information about their injuries and conditions and the treatments available to them.
