Sentara Hand Specialty Center

From the Finger Tips to the Elbow
Throughout the regions, orthopedic surgeons who specialize in hand extremities offer patients exceptional care for injuries, deformities, sports injuries, fractures, osteoarthritis and other conditions.

From diagnosis to recovery, the first of its kind Sentara Hand Specialty Center opened at the Orthopedic Hospital at Sentara Leigh in early 2017. After years of planning, patients in the Hampton Roads region now have a one-stop array of services including surgeon office visits, X-rays, diagnostics, outpatient surgery and procedures onsite, and hand speciality physical therapy. Emergency care from hand specialty orthopedic surgeons is available 24/7 through the adjacent Emergency Center at Sentara Leigh Hospital. 757-261-4263 (757-261-HAND) is the dedicated call line for the Sentara Hand Specialty Center.

PATIENT CONNECTION

“I accidentally cut my right hand and the staff quickly saw me and scheduled my surgery the next day. The surgical care, post-op recovery and my follow-up physical therapy made all the difference. In less than three months, I made progress equivalent to six months and can play the guitar again.”
