Hand & Wrist Center

Dedicated to the Health of Your Hands—for Life!

Whatever your hand or wrist condition, SRO’s dedicated Hand and Wrist Team has the training and experience to offer you expert diagnostic and rehabilitative care. Our surgeons and therapists all have specialized training that can make all the difference in restoring the full and free function of your hand and wrist.

The human hand is a remarkably complex and crucial mechanism. Whether we are reaching, grasping, holding, lifting, squeezing, pulling, pushing (or pecking at a keyboard), our hands are at the very center of our lives from our first moments, and they remain so all our lives long. Active and exposed as they are in daily life, it is little wonder our hands are often subject to accidental injuries and repetitive stress conditions that can severely affect our everyday function.

When that occurs, there is no substitute for the kind of specialized care you will find at the SRO Hand and Wrist Center. Here, you will be served by a dedicated team of hand specialists under the direction of Dr. Dominic Mintalucci, whose residency training in orthopedic surgery was followed by subspecialty fellowship training in microsurgical hand, wrist and elbow surgery.

The Hand and Wrist Center Team

Dr. Mintalucci is assisted by the Hand and Wrist Center’s team consisting of four occupational therapists who are also nationally certified hand therapists with long training and experience in the science of hand rehabilitation. The team also has a trained medical assistant and a surgery scheduler who can help guide you through your medical process. Splint and casting specialists are also available as needed. Our hand surgeons, therapists and support staff coordinate closely together to ensure a carefully planned, seamless program tailored specifically to each patient’s unique needs.

Our patients are afforded even greater convenience by our on-site diagnostic imaging and x-ray facilities, along with fully automated electronic medical records that keep every member of the team fully informed on diagnoses, treatment plans and progress for each patient, every step of the way.
