About Hand and Arm Injuries
Our hands and arms are intricately built with a network of tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves, bones, etc. that all work harmoniously together. We’re heavily dependent on our hands and arms to perform everyday activities. Injury, disease, or certain conditions can impair their usage and even cause extreme pain. The Face & Body Center has both orthopedic and plastic surgeons who are specially trained in the complexities of hand and arm surgical procedures in Jackson, MS.

Hand and Arm Procedures Reviews
"My wife had to have carpal tunnel and finger trigger release surgery. I took her to see Dr. Manisunduram. The facility is very nice but Dr. Mani was great. He explained everything about the surgery before it was done and the post op as well. The staff were exceptional as well as the Doctor. I would highly recommend this facility and Dr. Mani. to anyone needing this type of care."- S.G. / Google / Feb 11, 2017
"Carpal tunnel syndrome - Dr. Lucas and his wife Dr. Lucas were excellent. They explained in detail what needed to be done and did it where I understood everything. I would endorse Dr. Aubrey Lucas as an excellent surgeon. You can't even see a scar. No complications after surgery either. He referred me to a neurologist to make sure his findings were correct and that doctor was great too!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Nov 20, 2015

"Dr. Lucas is an amazing hand surgeon! He works with you to make the decisions and guides you on what is best - a very patient-centered doctor."- L.P. / Healthgrades / Apr 15, 2016
"Dr. Lucas was excellent in explaining what would be done, how they would do the surgery, and what I should expect for a few days after having carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. My surgery (both hand) was done with a local anesthetic and I felt terrific. In fact, I went to work the next day. He is the greatest."- D.S. / Healthgrades / Jul 25, 2017
There are several symptoms that are signs of a hand, arm, or wrist injury, disease, or condition. Some of the most common include:

What to Expect
At The Face & Body Center, our experienced hand surgeons evaluate your medical history and current symptoms to diagnose the injury, disease, or syndrome that may be affecting your hand, arm, or wrist. In some cases, patients may need to receive an x-ray or other forms of digital imaging to help in the diagnosing process.
After the condition has been confirmed, your physician will create a comprehensive treatment plan for your specific needs. Most often, a nonsurgical approach will be initiated as the first form of treatment. This may include oral or injected medications, the application of a splint, or physical therapy. If nonsurgical treatments are not an option or prove to be unsuccessful, your physician may then recommend a surgical option. Surgical procedures and techniques, as well as recovery time, will vary from patient to patient depending on their condition and its severity.
