Hand and Wrist Surgery

Hand and Wrist Surgery

Trust your hands to our plastic surgery team

The human hand is intricate and complex. 


Trust us with any problem, big or small. Thanks to surgical advancements, our hand surgeons have more tools than ever to restore hand function and appearance, even in severe injuries. 


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 and Dr. Schmidt, treat common hand problems such as tendon and nerve lacerations, trigger finger, fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, and wrist pain.


Dr. Schmidt completed fellowship training in orthopedic hand surgery which affords him additional experience treating 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.
