Common upper extremity procedures performed by Dr. Rankin or Dr. Dev include surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome, repair of tendon and nerve injuries, repair of fractures of the finger bones, skin grafts and flaps and treatment for infections.

Effective recovery from an upper extremity surgery may begin with a surgical procedure, but often requires Occupational Therapy post-operatively for the best possible outcome.
