When you need hand surgery for joint problems, arthritis, carpal tunnel or an old injury with scar tissue, you deserve the very best care. The same is true if you are dealing with a hand ailment such as trigger finger or tendonitis. Although these issues are common, your treatment should be uncommon; your hand surgery must not be generic.
It must be planned around you and your specific needs. It’s important to choose your surgeon and hand surgery center carefully to ensure that you receive all the essentials: the latest, most effective surgery methods, highly trained, caring staff, surgeons with meticulous technique who are dedicated to your wellbeing.
When you choose a plastic and reconstructive surgery practice, like Cohen/Winters in Bergen County, you can expect all this and more.
Expert, Appropriate Care for Hand Ailments
At Cohen/Winters, we provide personalized and superior service to every patient who entrusts their care to us. We will partner with you for the very best outcome from your hand surgery, both in form and function, so that your hands look and function properly.
You need your hands to be strong, agile and pain free and we are here to help. At our advanced hand surgery center in NJ, we use the latest surgical techniques and high tech equipment to ensure your hand surgery experience is top notch.
Our adjacent hand surgery center, Vanguard Surgical Center, is a state-of-the-art facility that allows us to perform your surgery optimally and start your recovery immediately.
Although we are experienced surgeons, we will never recommend surgery as a treatment for your hand ailments unless we feel it will benefit you and improve your life. When we perform hand surgery, we fully expect success. That’s because we prepare so well and rely upon our well-honed surgical and aesthetic skills to create the best possible outcome for our patients.
Our Approach to Total Patient Care
To determine if you are a good candidate to benefit from hand surgery, your NJ hand surgeon will examine you, learn about your medical history and formulate a plan to correct functional problems with your hands. The plan may or may not include surgery, at least initially. Then, we will explain to you the details of your condition and our recommended solution, along with any viable options for treatment.
Hand surgery is typically very safe and minimally invasive, however there are certain risks and we will explain those. We will answer any questions that you may have. If you are a good candidate who will benefit from hand surgery and you decide to go forward, we will put all our skills to work for you.
At Cohen/Winters, no hand surgery is routine, although we do many, many hand surgeries. There is no cookie-cutter or one-size-fits-all approach to hand surgery in our practice. We do no less than our best for every patient and we plan your surgery in a personalized manner, around your specific needs. Our goal is to improve the lives of each and every patient in our care.
Superior Hand Surgery Means Attention to all the Details
When we perform your surgery at our hand surgery center in NJ, we use all of our skills to maintain or improve sensitive nerve function and healthy blood supply to the hands. We free up joints to move properly and repair damaged tendons that impede movement with skillful grafting techniques.
We help eliminate chronic pain and inflammation issues that may have been causing disfigurement to your hands and fingers. In addition, we will ensure that surgery to the delicate bones and tissues of the hands is done gently and efficiently to provide a quick and uneventful recovery.
We treat all these hand conditions and more:
- Basal joint arthritis (involving the joint at the base of the thumb)
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tendinitis (or tendonitis)
- Trigger finger
- De Quervain Syndrome (when a narrowed tendon tunnel irritates tendons, causing pain from the thumb along the side of your wrist)
- Dupuytren’s disease or Dupuytren’s contracture (thickening of tissue in the palm and fingers, causing fingers to bend in toward your palm)
- Mallet finger (or baseball finger, when a ball or hammer hits the fingertip and bends/tears the extensor tendon so you can’t straighten your finger)
- Wrist pain
- Scar tissue from an injury
- Hand, finger, thumb or wrist fractures
- Hand pain and swelling
- Numbness, tingling or pins and needles
- Restricted movement of the hands or fingers
- Diminished hand strength (unable to grip properly or pick up objects without dropping)
The Beauty of the Hands
At the same time that functional issues are repaired in your hand surgery, we will pay great attention to aesthetics. If your hands don’t look good, chances are they are not functioning properly. This means that plastic and reconstructive surgeons, like our team, are the perfect choice when you have a disfiguring hand ailment such as RA or an old injury that has not healed properly. Our skilled surgeons ensure that scars are minimized and hidden in the crease and folds of the palm and fingers.
Visiting Northern NJ for Hand Surgery
If you don’t happen to have a stellar aesthetic and reconstructive surgery practice for hand surgery near you, you might consider (as many of our patients do), traveling to Bergen County for treatment at our NJ hand surgery center.
At Cohen/Winters, we make it easy for you to visit us and get the treatment you need for your hand problem. Many of our patients fly in or drive from NYC or other proximal East Coast cities. You will, of course, need a friend or family member to travel with or drive you to the hand surgery center on surgery day. We often recommend the Hilton nearby if you would like to stay overnight before or after your surgery.
