If you are struggling with pain, stiffness, weakness or numbness in your hands or wrists, it’s good to know that fast, expert help is available for you.
Here at The Meriden Hospital in Coventry, we can provide you with rapid access to one of the top Consultant Hand and Wrist Surgeons in the region for comprehensive assessment, diagnosis and treatment.
Given the complex structure of your hands and wrists, it’s not surprising that they are fairly susceptible to a range of problems, from injury to disease.

Whatever symptoms you are experiencing in your hand or wrist, our experienced Hand and Wrist Surgeons will help get you out of pain and back to better function in your hand and wrist. Why not book your private consultation now?
Surgery may be carried out to:
Some wrist surgery can be done using keyhole surgery (wrist arthroscopy). Using only very small incisions (cuts) it provides reduced pain, less visible scarring, and recovery may be faster. Other conditions may require open surgery.
One of the most important factors in recovering well from any hand and wrist condition is having expert support throughout.
Here at The Meriden Hospital, our experienced Physiotherapy team will work closely with you, helping you safely regain function and movement in your hand and wrist.
They will structure a personalised rehabilitation programme just for you, to help improve your strength, range of movement and flexibility, at the pace that is best for you.
Once they have talked with you, they will carry out a physical examination of your hand and wrist, moving them around into various positions and asking you to perform some simple movements. This helps them to assess the extent of the problem.
Additional tests may be needed to assist with diagnosis. This will often be an X-ray of your hand and wrist to confirm or exclude any abnormality in the bones.
Additional scans like MRI and ultrasound can sometimes also be helpful, particularly when assessing problems involving the tendons, ligaments, muscles or nerves. We have comprehensive diagnostic capabilities and any of these scans can easily be arranged for you on-site should you require them.
The medical history, physical examination and the results of any diagnostic tests are used by your Consultant to help them make a diagnosis.
Once they know the exact cause of your symptoms, they will discuss any suitable treatment options with you.
If you have pain, stiffness, weakness or numbness in a hand or wrist, expert medical assessment and advice can be invaluable.
Our experienced Hand and Wrist Consultants will thoroughly investigate your symptoms, outline all treatment options for you and arrange any further scans or surgery if required.
