Because the hand is a complex network of bones, nerves, blood vessels, tendons and ligaments, hand surgery and treatment of injuries to the hand and wrist require a very specific type of expertise.

When hand injuries or disorders occur, they can disrupt our everyday life. At UM Upper Chesapeake Health, our team of hand specialists, Harford County's only team of dedicated hand surgeons, can help.

Our doctors have the expertise and experience to diagnose and treat even the most complex hand conditions. To make an appointment at our Bel Air location, call 410-569-5155.

Diagnosis of your hand issue requires a thorough examination and specialized testing. Treatment may involve a non-surgical approach, such as hand therapy, and/or surgical repair to restore motion, function, strength and sensation to your hands.
