If you have a hand, wrist or elbow injury or chronic condition, it can severely affect your ability to function — from working to enjoying recreational activities to doing simple tasks like brushing your teeth.

Getting the right diagnosis and treatment can help you get back to leading a full, active life. That's why you want the kind of specialized expertise offered at Rush, home to the state’s first dedicated center for hand, wrist and elbow care.

At Rush, orthopedic surgeons diagnose and treat all kinds of hand, wrist and elbow injuries and disorders — from the common to the most complex. In addition to nonsurgical therapies, they offer the most innovative minimally invasive techniques to decrease the pain and reduce recovery time. Often, these procedures can be done with an incision smaller than one inch, leaving minimal scarring.

Orthopedic surgeons at Rush were also among the first in Chicago to perform joint replacement surgery for the hand, wrist and elbow.

Nationally recognized for excellence

Rush University Medical Center is ranked No. 7 in the nation for orthopedics by U.S. News & World Report, with internationally respected orthopedic specialists whose research discoveries and innovative treatment approaches are helping patients at Rush — and around the globe.
