Dr. Purdy and everyone on her team strive to do the right thing in all things, big and small. We have a heart for our patients, to listen and care.

"The Hand is the Dexterity of the Soul."
The hand, wrist, forearm, and elbow are unique areas of the human body made up of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels. These elements must all be in good working order for the extremity to function well.
The relationship between all these structures is delicate and refined. An injury or disease can affect any or all of these structures and impair the use of the extremity.
Not all problems treated by a hand surgeon need surgery. We often recommend non-surgical treatments, such as medication, splints, therapy, or injections.
If you have pain in your fingers, hand, wrist or elbow, or if you have other upper-extremity related concerns, contact us today to learn how Dr. Purdy can help improve your quality of life.
