The hand and wrist is composed of 27 different bones and a complex array of tendons, muscles, ligaments, and joints all working smoothly and seamlessly together to offer an incredible range of motion, versatility, and functionality. Yet because of the intricacy and complexity of this incredible engineering design, even the smallest alteration can be intensely disruptive to your normal lifestyle. If your hands no longer function as they should if or simple, everyday movements have become painful and difficult, Dr. Yalif and his friendly, compassionate staff at Y Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery can help. We are a boutique medical practice with a patient-centric philosophy: our unique skillset, training, and expertise enables us to expertly diagnose, treat—and resolve—your specific medical concern.

At Y Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, we handle a wide range of medical problems relating to the soft tissues, joints, and bones of the hand, wrist, fingers, thumb, and arm:

  • Traumatic injury: Whether from a car collision, power tool, or lawn equipment, we have extensive experience repairing severe injury and trauma to the arm, hand, and digits.
  • Breaks and fractures: Broken bones begin healing quickly, so seek expert advice immediately to make sure your fracture is repaired the right way, the first time, to prevent long-term damage.
  • Repetitive motion injuries (repetitive stress injury, or RSI): If your normal work or recreational activities involve a frequent repetitive motion and have become painful, prompt medical attention is warranted: these injuries only get worse over time if not treated properly!
  • Arthritis: Don’t let your arthritis hold you back from the activities you love. We offer advanced treatments for both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, as well as for less common types.
  • Degenerative conditions: Cutting-edge treatments are now available for many degenerative diseases such as carpel tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, and de Quervain Syndrome.
  • Scar removal: Eliminate unsightly scarring or damage caused by prior injury or medical procedure for smooth, capable-looking hands.
  • Hand rejuvenation: Reverse years of damage caused by environmental exposure and hard work, and restore your hands’ youthful, healthy appearance!
