Hand Surgeon in San Antonio, TX
Hand surgery is a branch of orthopedics that deals with problems of the hand, wrist, and forearm. While many conditions or injuries can be treated without surgery, it is best to consult a hand surgeon if you are experiencing pain in your fingers, hand, wrist, or arm.
At the Center for Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine in San Antonio, Dr. Michael L. Jones is fellowship trained in surgery of the hand. This means that he has had extensive education and training that enables him to treat the most complex hand and lower extremity disorders, especially those involving the nerves and tendons.
Hand Injuries and Conditions

- Arthritis of the hand

- Hand wounds
- Dupuytren's disease
- deQuervain’s tendonitis
- Sports injuries of the hand and wrist

Hand surgeons like Dr. Jones will often recommend nonsurgical options to restore movement and reduce or eliminate pain, such as hand therapy, which is a combination of physical and occupational therapy.

- Realignment of broken bones
- Skin grafts and flaps
- Tendon repairs

- Surgical drainage for hand infections
