If you suffer from painful conditions such as arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, your whole world changes. Suddenly you have a difficult time completing everyday tasks. Thats when you need highly specialized care that can get you out of pain and back to your active lifestyle. At the Colorado Hand Center, Steven M. Topper, M.D., Gregg Martyak, M.D., Emily DiBartolomeo, PA-C, and Dianne C. March, OTR/CHT, work together to offer you complete care for the upper extremity including comprehensive evaluation, medical and surgical management, and post surgical rehabilitation in the same practice. Because hand surgery and post surgical rehabilitation each have their own unique role in the healing process, there is no approach more efficient than the combination of both. Communication between the surgeon and therapist is critical to the best possible outcomes.
