Wrist 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 wrist care from our fellowship-trained and board-certified wrist doctors so you can rebound. 

The wrist works with the hand to allows patients to perform a countless number of movements. Their constant use makes the wrist susceptible to pain and damage, whether it's due to a condition, like arthritis, or from a traumatic injury, such as a fracture. As medical experts, wrist doctors have advanced training and knowledge to evaluate and diagnose both simple and complex injuries and conditions of the hand and wrist. 

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.

The Region's Most Preferred Wrist & Hand Care in Vancouver & Portland

At Rebound Orthopedics & Neurosurgery, our doctors and staff put patients first and are dedicated to providing compassionate, quality orthopedic care. As the region's most preferred orthopedic practice, we are proud to be the official sports medicine providers for the Portland Trail Blazers and continuously strive for excellence.

Our fellowship-trained and board-certified wrist surgeons, James (Jim) C. Chesnutt, M.D.Edward H. Coale, Jr., M.D., Benjamin Jacobs, M.D., Douglas S. Musgrave, M.D., S. Kevin Nayar, M.D., and Kirk L. Wong, M.D., have the skill and expertise to treat a wide variety of wrist and hand injuries and conditions. Our wrist doctors will always exhaust all conservative treatment options before suggesting surgery; however, there are some situations in which wrist surgery is the best option to help eliminate pain and restore function. If surgery is recommended, our surgeons have vast experience in performing many surgical procedures, including carpal tunnel release, reconstructive wrist and hand surgery, and surgical fracture repair.

To help facilitate a full and rapid recovery, our wrist surgeons take a team approach when it comes to patient-centered care, and they work in conjunction with our hand therapists, who offer specialized upper extremity therapy services. Our ultimate goal is to provide an effective rehabilitation plan that is focused on your individual needs to help you resume a pain-free lifestyle.
