Hand and Upper Extremities

Each part of our body is unique and serves a special purpose. Your hands are essential to your quality of life and daily function, and conditions affecting them can range from uncomfortable to incapacitating. With hand problems, the impact on your daily activities can be great.

Our Orthopedic Hand Surgeon, Jessica H. Peelman, MD,  has experience in non-operative and operative treatment of conditions affecting the hand and upper extremity.  As a hand specialist, Dr. Peelman collaborates with our certified hand therapists to explore non-surgical options prior to surgical treatment. Her goal is to restore pain free function for her patients and help them return to their normal activities.
