Hand or Wrist Fracture

About Your Care and Condition

A fractured hand or wrist can be a minor or major issue. Regardless, you'll need immediate medical attention. Fortunately, Spectrum Health hand and wrist specialists are available for you. If needed, our orthopedic surgeons can fix every one of those intricate bones.

A fracture is a broken or cracked bone. When you fracture your hand or wrist, you can't move it at all. The hand or wrist may look misshapen, and it may be numb. Sometimes the bone shows through the skin. Wrist or hand fractures can be a result of osteoporosis, sports injuries or a slip-and-fall. Getting expert treatment will ensure complete and proper healing.
