The UCHealth Hand Clinic at University of Colorado Hospital offers a team approach to hand care to ensure the best possible diagnosis and treatment for our patients. Our doctors and nurses have special training in hand surgery and practice hand surgery full time.

We also are a part of the only academic center in the region. This means we conduct clinical research into the most effective treatments and surgical options, which we bring to our patients.

Conditions we treat

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Distal radius fractures
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture
  • Hand injuries
  • Hand surgery

  • Limb preservation
  • Trigger finger
  • Wrist and elbow arthroscopy
  • Wrist reconstruction

Service specialty: Wide Awake hand surgery

For patients requiring hand surgery, the Wide Awake Local Anesthesia No Tourniquet (WALANT) Technique offers many advantages. Operating under local anesthesia means that the patient will not need extra laboratory or x-ray tests, will not need to see their primary doctor, will be able to eat and drink before surgery, and likely will not need an IV catheter. This makes Wide Awake hand surgery far more cost-effective and convenient for the patient.

We offer expertise in treating the following problems with the wide awake technique:

  • Carpal tunnel release
  • Dupuytren Contracture release
  • Ligament repair
  • Mass excision
  • Trigger finger release
