Hand & Upper Extremity

Not only is the hand used in most day-to-day functions, but it is also one of the most complex and delicate structures in the human body. Because of this, a different approach to orthopaedic treatment is needed. Problems in the hand require the assessment of an experienced clinician who is board certified in orthopedic surgery. The AOC Hand Team has the knowledge and expertise to provide you with the unique treatment you need.


Dr. Jared L. Burkett and Dr. Jeffrey D. Boatright specialize in the treatment of hand and upper extremity disorders. Our team of hand surgeons takes a comprehensive approach to restore optimal function and use of the hand and upper extremity, using modern surgical skills and technology to treat fractures, arthritis, congenital deformities, and sports injuries of the entire hand, wrist, and forearm. In addition, the therapy that many hand injuries require to achieve the best possible outcome is easily accessible with our in-house Physical Therapy department.


Whether you have a condition such as carpal tunnel syndrome or work or sports-related injury, you can be confident in the care you will receive from the staff and doctors with the AOC Hand Team.
