Hand and Wrist Surgery

Hand and Wrist Surgery


At Plastic Surgery & Skin Specialists by BayCare Clinic, our surgeons have extensive training and experience in hand surgery. 

We treat a wide spectrum of hand and wrist related conditions caused by traumatic injuries, degenerative conditions, or workplace exposure. Our hand surgeons, Dr. O'Connor, Dr. Schmidt and Dr. Zasuly, treat common hand problems such as tendon and nerve lacerations, trigger fingers, fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, and wrist pain.


In addition to common hand problems, Dr. Schmidt has additional orthopedic hand surgery fellowship training, equipping him to treat other conditions such as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis of the wrist and hand, ligament injuries in the wrist, and wrist fractures.


After any hand surgery, we work closely with our hand therapists who help provide patients with the optimum outcome for their hand or wrist condition.



Common Hand Injuries and Conditions

Patients visit our hand surgeons for care of the following:


  • Tendon and nerve lacerations
  • Severed fingers
  • Ligament injuries
  • Trigger fingers
  • Finger fractures and hand fractures
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome
  • Arthritis treatment

The human hand is intricate and complex.  Trust any problems, big or small, to an expert in hand care.  Thanks to surgical advancements, today's hand surgeons have more tools than ever before to restore hand function and appearance, even in severe injuries. 


With any treatment recommendation, our goal is to minimize pain and restore function. Our hand surgeons and therapy staff will create an individual program to help you regain strength and maximize range of motion. We'll also help you seek preventative measures to decrease the chance of re-injury.
