Hand and upper extremity conditions are common but treatable, Dr. Brian Klika of BayCare Clinic says. For the best results, see a hand expert with specialized training that better ensures a positive outcome.

 

That’s the message Klika shared with viewers during a livestreamed discussion on hand and upper extremity conditions. He is an orthopedic surgeon with Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic in Green Bay. He is fellowship trained in hand surgery.

 

Klika was joined by Lacey Jandrin, a certified physician assistant with Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic. She shared the importance of therapy in treating hand and upper extremity conditions.

 

Treatment options for hand and upper extremity conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, ganglion cysts and others, include conservative and surgical options, Klika said.

 

Klika and Jandrin say they begin most patient treatments with non-surgical options and offer less conservative options as the results dictate.

 

“We really feel like it’s our job to educate patients on the whole spectrum starting with the most conservative and then leading up to surgery if that is the ultimate option for patients,” Jandrin says.

 

For those dealing with hand, wrist or arm pain, don’t wait to see a doctor.

 

“It’s important to be evaluated sooner than later,” Klika says. “Too frequently, Lacey and I will see patients that are just really far in the disease process … Don’t be shy about coming in.”

 

Dr. Brian J. Klika sees patients in Green Bay, Manitowoc and Kaukauna. To request an appointment, call 877-884-8796 or do so online.
