Utah’s Hand and Wrist Specialists
Your Hand and Wrist Doctor of Choice for Exceptional Orthopedic Care
We use our hands in everything we do, which unfortunately means a hand or wrist injury can keep you from doing even the most basic things in everyday life.
At Heiden Orthopedics, we understand the feeling of helplessness that comes with a broken hand or injured wrist. Being unable to enjoy the activities you love or take care of even the most menial tasks can be beyond frustrating. That is why our orthopedic hand and wrist specialists take the time to provide you with the right treatment, customized specifically to your life and your injury.
Whether you’re struggling with carpal tunnel syndrome or suffered a serious ulna fracture, you can trust our orthopedic hand and wrist specialists to listen to your problem, walk you through your treatment options and design a plan to get you back to all the things you love most in life.
The Heiden Orthopedic Approach
As the most common of all orthopedic injuries, hand and wrist injuries happen more than we would like. Thankfully, our orthopedic surgeon is highly trained and experienced in treating the full spectrum of hand and wrist injuries. Whenever possible, our orthopedic hand and wrist specialist will opt to treat common injuries with non-surgical methods. Some injuries and conditions, however, do require surgery to ensure a full recovery.
At Heiden Orthopedics, we believe you play a vital role in your treatment. During the first step in the treatment process, one of our hand and wrist specialists will discuss your injury in depth to ensure you fully understand your condition. After ensuring you are comfortable moving forward, one of our orthopedic knee specialists will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan designed to meet your health and recovery goals.
For more information on knee injuries, conditions and surgeries, please see our Hand and Wrist Anatomy and Surgery page.
