Hand & Upper Extremity Specialists at Hughston Hospital
Find relief from painful hand and wrist injuries and conditions at Columbus Regional.

Each of these seemingly simple daily activities and many more are only possible because of the versatility and flexibility of the upper extremity. This area of the human body is uniquely complex and includes the joints, bones, tendons, nerves, and muscles of the fingers, hand, wrist, arm, elbow, and shoulder.
