Patients have access to Northeast Ohio’s largest group of hand surgeons thanks to Summa Health System’s partnership with Crystal Clinic Orthopedic Center.
The diversity in fellowship training of our hand surgeons is impressive. Physicians have trained at prestigious fellowship programs throughout the country, and they have brought this expertise back to Northeast Ohio.
Treatment is available for common problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, wrist and finger fractures, tendon injuries, and tennis elbow. Many ailments can be treated in non-surgically, often using splints, casts, cortisone injections and therapy.
Our physicians have the depth and breadth of knowledge, and the experience to treat complex upper extremity problems, including congenital deformities and other conditions in infants and children.
Hand therapy is an essential part of the care team. Hand therapy is available at convenient locations through Summa Health System and Crystal Clinic Orthopedic Center. Our therapists are designated as certified hand therapists, based on experience and special training, and credentialed by state occupational therapy boards. All therapists participate in continuing education.
In many cases, patients can go right from the doctor's office to the therapist's office to begin treatment. This service keeps patients from having to set up a separate visit or delay care.
