Hand & Hand surgery

Hands are highly complex biomechanical organs. Bones, tendons and ligatures are finely tuned. Additionally, many fine nerves facilitate sensing and fine motor skills. When something is out of order, we notice the importance of our hands. Rudolfinerhaus specializes on conservative and surgical treatments of the wrist joint and hand injuries.

In case conservative treatment is not sufficient, top specialists in hand surgery perform the necessary procedures. They are specialized in acute treatment and also secondary reconstructive surgery of bones, joints, nerves and tendons.

Quick and highly specialized diagnostics
Problems of the hand, wrist or forearm are easily diagnosed at Rudolfinerhaus. All radiological examinations such as x ray, MRT, CTI and high resolution ultrasound are available at Diagnostic Imaging. Neurological symptoms such as numbness or tingling in the hands or loss of strength require early diagnostics to avoid lasting nerve damage. Neurological examinations such as measurement of nerve conduction velocity (NCV) and electromyography are possible at our Private Outpatient Clinic. We cooperate closely with other specialists to check possible rheumatic or osteoporotic conditions.

These diseases are treated conservatively or surgically as an outpatient, in the day clinic or during an inpatient stay:

  • Treatment of bone fractures and sports injuries
  • Tendon injuries and overload
  • Nerve compression syndrome (i.e. carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Trigger finger
  • Morbus Dupuytren
  • Rheumatic and degenerative diseases (arthrosis)
  • Hand tumors
  • Neuromuscular contractions
  • Infections
  • Morbus Sudeck
  • Congenital malformations
