A hand specialist is an orthopedic doctor who specializes in preventing, diagnosing, and treating various issues that can affect the hand. This complex structure is made up of an intricate series of nerves, bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. All of these components must work together to provide the functionality needed for many daily activities.

Hand injuries are quite common, accounting for approximately 25% of all workplace injuries according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Even a relatively minor hand injury can make it difficult or impossible to perform simple, everyday tasks. Due to the complexity of the hand and the essential role it plays in daily life, it is important to seek specialty care for a hand injury, impaired function, or general pain.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
