Hand & Upper Extremity

Do you have pain in your hand or wrist that is limiting your ability to function? A hand or wrist problem can cause numbness, tingling, weakness and stiffness, making it difficult to write, type, drive or even hold an object. Orthopedix MD - formally Meli Orthopedics Centers of Excellence - in South Florida sees patients with hand, wrist and forearm pain, and we offer minimally invasive procedures to address your symptoms. Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common conditions we see and treat.

Surgery is not always the best option for hand and upper extremity injuries. They can take a long time to heal, and the procedures are very complex. At Orthopedix MD, Dr. Ayisha Livingstone offers advanced procedures, like endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery, which are far less invasive than traditional surgery. That means you will heal and regain function faster. We also do reconstructive hand surgery and wrist fusion.

Our office treats the following conditions:

Our upper extremity specialists also treat shoulder and elbow conditions, such as:
