World-class upper extremity care within your reach


Living with pain in your hands, wrists, elbows, or shoulders can make doing what you love feel out of reach. Ortho Rhode Island’s team of upper extremity surgeons and specialists are leaders in state-of-the-art care for the bones, joints, and muscles of the arm, helping to restore function and put your goals back within your grasp.

Ortho Rhode Island’s upper extremity care is tailored to your unique symptoms, diagnosis, and lifestyle. Our providers explore minimally invasive treatment options first, like anti-inflammatory medications and the use of braces, before recommending surgical intervention. We build patient relationships on a foundation of understanding and communication, empowering you to make informed decisions to help restore mobility.

In collaboration with our upper extremity physicians, our team of highly trained physical therapists and certified hand therapists work one-on-one with you to implement an individualized care plan designed to return you to what matters most.

All this patient-centered care is powered by a forward-thinking approach. Ortho Rhode Island is at the forefront of leading-edge treatments and technologies for the upper extremity, including rotator cuff repair, carpal tunnel surgery, trigger finger release, total shoulder replacement, CMC arthroplasties, tennis and golfer’s elbow treatment, PRP injections with Ortho RI Biologics, and more. By embracing the latest innovations in orthopedics, we offer patients a variety of resources to find the treatment that’s right for them.
