The human hand is composed of 27 bones, multiple tendons, delicate nerves, several muscles, and many blood vessels. While our hands work very well most of the time, an injury or disease process can sometimes make things go wrong. Our hands are very important to our daily lives, and hand pain can cause limitations in function and decreased quality of life. If you live near the Raleigh area and have a hand problem, please consider evaluation by a hand specialist at the Raleigh Hand Center for treatment. Specialized hand care can make a life-changing difference for patients with hand injuries.
