There is much medical information on the Internet. To paraphrase Sy Simms, "an educated patient is our best patient." We strongly believe an important part of our patient treatment is educating our patients about their orthopaedic condition and the various treatments available. Under Patient Education is some information we have prepared. Unfortunately much information on the Internet is incorrect, overly promotional, or confusing.
Below are some links to sites containing information that I feel is generally worthwhile.

American Society for Surgery of the Hand
American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons
