Hand Procedures

Mr. Bunker tailors your treatment which may include both non-operative (i.e. splints, pain relief) and operative components, often with the input of a qualified hand physiotherapist to help you in your journey. Surgery for hands targets compressed nerves, inflammatory conditions causing pain and locking, benign lumps such as ganglions and arthritic joints.
