What Hand Conditions Require a Specialist?

A hand specialist is experienced in a way your family doctor is not. A specialist is board certified. This certification requires on-going training in the latest diagnostic techniques and procedures. A general practitioner may make a general diagnosis for hand pain or weakness. However, a hand specialist can quickly determine the difference between similarly presenting hand conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome, which can be confusing as both cause the hand to be numb.

In cases where the hand has been crushed or severely traumatized, immediate access to a hand specialist can often preserve the function of the hand and expedite recovery. As a Metairie hand specialist, Dr. Donnelly's office is conveniently located for patients in the surrounding Greater New Orleans region.
