The hand can be a complicated piece of anatomy. Sometimes, it might be hard for you to visualize all of the ligaments, tendons, muscles, and bones that are responsible for the smoother operation of all your fingers. This can make a visual aid especially useful for patients looking to further understand the source of their pain.

Dr. Polsen makes several of these video aids available. Patients can see the ins and outs of their hand ailments, from the causes to the treatments. These videos are designed to further your education, not necessarily to act as a replacement for diagnosis or treatments.

As one of the finest hand surgeons in Houston, Dr. Polsen has both the experience and the expertise to help you overcome a variety of hand ailments. But patients often want to know as much as possible about how their hand injury occurred in the first place–as well as how to prevent one from happening again.

These videos serve that purpose, to an extent. Patients are able to see what causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, for example. After all, the hands are much more complex than patients might initially assume. There are all kinds of tendons, ligaments, muscles and bones working together to ensure you gain your full mobility.

The importance of the hands are difficult to understand. After all, we use our hands on an almost constant, daily basis. Usually we don’t notice that. But when our hands become injured or strained in some way, it’s easy to see just how much we rely on these ten (or so) digits. If you want help getting your hands treated, contact Dr. Polsen today to schedule a consultation. You can get help with your hand pain, schedule a hand treatment, and get back to not noticing your hands again!

Dr Polsen and his staff did such an excellent job on my carpal tunnel and cubital release surgery that I am considering having the other one done. The results were better than I expected. I wish that I hadn't waited so long to have the surgery. Highly Recommend!
