Darrell L. Henderson, MD performs hand and wrist surgery on patients in Lafayette, LA following injuries or certain medical conditions so that they can have increased mobility and restore their quality of life.

Imagine all the things you could not do without your hands and wrists. Although these are some of the smallest parts of your body, they play an important role in your day-to-day life, sports, and other activities. Unfortunately, your hands and wrists are quite vulnerable to injuries, trauma, and certain medical conditions.

We value the quality of life of our patients. We understand that “acceptable mobility” is not enough for our patients. We work closely with each patient to understand how their hand and wrist problems affect their lives. We then determine the best treatment plan that will restore their quality of life.

Why Should I Consider a Procedure for My Hands and Wrists?

Unfortunately, many medical conditions that affect your hands and wrists only get worse without treatment. Some conditions can even damage the surrounding tissue, further affecting your health and well-being.

Darrell L. Henderson, MD offers only the most advanced treatments for your hands and wrists. Our plastic surgeons have extensive skill, experience, and knowledge regarding hand and wrist conditions and procedures.

What Happens After My Hand and Wrist Procedure?

Most hand and wrist treatments involve post-treatment physical therapy. Working with a professional physical therapist allows you to strengthen muscles and improve coordination. After your physical therapy, you are less likely to re-injure your hands and wrists.

In rare cases, your plastic surgeon may recommend that you reduce or eliminate your participation in certain activities. Even with the most advanced surgical techniques, your hands and wrists may be more vulnerable to injury than before the onset of your condition. You may be able to use a brace or wrap, reduce the frequency of the activity, or spend less time during each undertaking of the activity.*
