Welcome to The Hand & Wrist Clinic at Spire Parkway Hospital.
Our aim is to provide high quality rehabilitation and surgery for any injured or painful hand.
We provide a comprehensive hand and wrist service at our Solihull based Hospital.
Our dedicated team of doctors and therapists are here to provide a friendly and professional service. At first consultation we aim to diagnose problems and formulate a treatment plan tailored to the individual’s needs. We have on the spot nerve testing facilities and, where possible, treatment will be given at the time of the first appointment. Our therapists offer rapid rehabilitation programmes and the surgery we offer ranges from minimally invasive surgery such as wrist arthroscopy to complex finger joint replacement.
At The Hand & Wrist Clinic, we want you to have as much information as possible, ensuring you make an informed decision that is best for you. We therefore provide material on a variety of hand problems as well as the treatments that we currently use to combat these conditions.
If you would like any further information or would like to see one of our specialist hand surgeons to discuss anything further, please contact us.

Some conditions we treat include:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
We provide various treatments for wrist injuries. These are our most common wrist surgeries:
Wrist ligament surgery
Required when damage to the ligaments has occurred, causing a misalignment of the joints in the wrist. The surgeon will make an incision and a graft is made to replace the damaged ligaments. Temporary metal pins are placed in the wrist to keep the bones stationary to aid the healing process.
Arthroscopic surgery of the wrist
Wrist arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, allowing surgeons to view in and around the wrist using an arthroscope. This specialist equipment can identify and treat damaged tissue. Due to the procedure only requiring small incisions, patients normally find their recovery time much faster and their risk of surgical infection is low.
The Hand & Wrist Clinic can consult on a full range of conditions. If you require any further information, or if you would like to book an appointment, please contact us on: 0845 850 1451 or email email@example.com
