Acute fractures and dislocations can occur unexpectedly at any time in life. In the hand and arm these can have a dramatic impact in your ability to go about your normal life and can also have significant longer term ramifications. Seeking early advice and treatment from a surgeon specialised in treatment of upper limb injuries can minimise the impact of these types of injuries and get you back on track as early as possible.
Dr Alexander treats all traumatic injuries of the upper limb from shoulder to fingertip and is very happy to assess and treat children over the age of 12.
It is worth noting that the Sportsmed Stepney Hub has a team of GPs and sports doctors available 7 days a week with walk-in appointments available for immediate assessment of any acute injury.
