The hand and wrist are composed of many small bones called carpals, metacarpals and phalanges. The two bones of the lower arm — theradius and the ulna — meet at the hand to form the wrist.
Because of the complicated anatomy of the wrist and hand bones it often requires a specialized surgeon to perform Hand & Wrist Surgery if needed. One of the most common injuries to occur to the hand and wrist is falling on an outstretched hand.
The Median and Ulnar nerves are the major nerves of the hand, running the length of the arm to transmit electrical impulses to and from the brain to create movement and sensation.
