Dr. McCall is amazing! She did a fantastic job on my bilateral reduction. I am so pleased with the results. Her nurse, Kristen, is also fantastic. I can't say enough good things! My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a plastic surgeon in this area.

Arthritis of the Hands

Arthritis can affect different parts of the body, including the elbows, wrists, and hands. Osteoarthritis will often affect the point where the base of the thumb meets the wrist. This area can become painful as the joint deteriorates from years of use.

Corticosteroid injections into the affected joint can relieve pain and allow for up to a year or more of improved function. For those who don’t respond well to injections, different kinds of surgeries can provide relief.

During your consultation at our office in Waukesha, WI, we can determine if surgery or a less invasive approach is right for you.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

/

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes patients to lose function in the hands over time. Fortunately, there have been many advancements in the minimally invasive medical treatment of RA, so there is less of a demand for surgery. Still, people will occasionally need surgery for tendons that are out of alignment or for joints that are no longer functional.

Dupuytren’s Contracture

Sometimes hand problems come not from the outside, but from our own genetics. Such is the case with Dupuytren’s contracture.

About Dupuytren’s Contracture

Dupuytren’s contracture (also known as Dupuytren’s disease) is a condition in which the tough layer of fascia on the palm of the hand starts to contract. Instead of remaining soft and supple, the palm develops thick cords that pull the fingers into flexion.

Dupuytren’s Contracture Symptoms

Patients may notice dimpling or puckering develop in the palm of the hand slowly over time. The lump of skin that develops in the palm may feel sensitive. In most cases of Dupuytren’s disease, the flexion affects the ring finger and pinkie.

Potential Treatment Options

Surgery has been a common treatment for this condition for a long time. In recent years, an injection called XIAFLEX® has been used to rupture the tight cords in a simple office procedure. XIAFLEX is appropriate for many people with Dupuytren’s contracture, but some will still require surgery.

Skin Cancers of the Hand

Doctors have long warned the public about the dangers of prolonged sun exposure. Over time, sun damage can increase your risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, or melanoma. Removing these cancerous lesions early helps prevent the spread of cancer through your skin and to other parts of the body.

Lake Country Plastic & Hand Surgery takes the utmost care when surgically removing cancerous lesions from the hands. Dr. McCall's work as a cosmetic surgeon helps her ensure optimal patient health and natural-looking results.

Our Approach to Hand Surgery

Hand surgery is one of the most rewarding specialties in medicine because our hands are so crucial to our daily lives. Hands make it possible to alter, enhance, and interact with our environment.

Think of times you've appreciated musicians in concert as they demonstrated mastery of their instruments. Recall your last trip to the Milwaukee Art Museum, and how so many marvels of visual art comprise deliberate brushstrokes and the countless taps of hammers and chisels. The state of Wisconsin also has a great tradition of woodworking, with each piece a testament to the versatility and abilities that our hands afford us.

At Lake Country Plastic & Hand Surgery, we want to restore form and function to your hands so you are able to appreciate what this world has to offer, and so others can enjoy what you have to offer the world.
