Hand and Elbow Services

Ortho xrayYour hand has 27 bones in it, along with several joints, nerves and muscles that work together to help you accomplish the many daily tasks of living. Hands help us manipulate our environment by grasping large objects to picking up small items.

When an injury or disease affects your ability to use your hands or arms, your quality of life is severely impacted. The orthopedic experts at Denver health aim to help you regain motion through a collaborative approach to care.
