Hand Injuries | Norman Weinzweig | Chicago Hand Surgeon

Chicago Hand Surgeon, Norman Weinzweig, recently launched an updated version of his hand education website CHICAGOINSTITUTEFORHANDSURGERY.COM. This website has been redesigned to help patients gain a better understanding of treatment techniques for mutilated hand injuries, stiff digits, burn injuries, work related injuries, secondary reconstructions and other complex hand injuries. Norman Weinzweig also has a personal website NORMANWEINZWEIG.COM that discusses common and complex hand injuries. Both websites were created as a resource for patients to learn more about the causes and treatments of hand conditions so they can advocate for their own best care.

The hand consists of numerous complex structures such as soft tissue, bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves and blood vessels. These structures work in unison to create proper hand function and flexibility. Due to the complexity of the structures, acute or chronic hand injuries can occur. Through the websites, patients and medical professionals can increase their knowledge of the hand to understand what can go wrong and what the treatment options are.

Dedicated to education and research, Norman Weinzweig’s websites provide patients with insight and practical knowledge on common hand conditions such as:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • deQuervain’s Syndrome
  • Stiff digits
  • Burn Injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Mutilated Hands
  • Trigger Finger
  • Trauma Injuries
  • Hand and Wrist Tumors
  • Numbness
  • Fractures in Children

Not all hand injuries require surgery. Many problems can be treated non-surgically with medication, occupational therapy or casts. When non-surgical treatment does not alleviate pain, or immediate surgery is required, it is important that patients are treated by a highly qualified and experienced hand surgeon to ensure optimal results.

Acute and chronic hand injuries can be extremely debilitating and difficult to treat. Norman Weinzweig, Chicago Hand Surgeon, is dedicated to providing excellent care to all patients suffering from simple and complex hand injuries.
