Orthopedic Wrist Specialist
Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit this site. The Hand and Wrist Institute is a medical practice that diagnoses and treats problems of the wrist and the upper extremities. This medical practice is made up of a team of staff members who work under the supervision of Dr. John Knight, a board-certified orthopedic wrist specialist.
Dr. Knight is trained to treat a variety of conditions including: animal bites, arm fractures, hand burns, carpal tunnel syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist sprains, hand tumors, hand infections and elbow fractures. He places emphasis on performing minimally-invasive procedures. Endoscopic carpal tunnel syndrome release and advanced wrist endoscopy are two of the most commonly performed procedures at the Hand and Wrist Institute.
The Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Syndrome release is a ten-minute surgery that is performed to correct carpal tunnel syndrome. It can be done under local anesthetic and only requires a 1 cm incision. Patients can return to their normal activities within 48 hours.
The Advanced Wrist Endoscopy is performed to alleviate complex wrist problems. Dr. Knight will make two small incisions to correct ligament and cartilage injuries. Additionally, Dr. Knight is also trained to perform hand rejuvenation. This procedure helps take years off of the hands, which is one of the most overlooked places in the body.
Dr. John Knight is a board-certified and fellowship trained. He has also received certification in performing hand surgery. During his 25-year career, Dr. Knight has performed over 20,000 procedures. He is one of the top hand surgeons in the nation. Additionally, The Hand and Wrist Institute provides state of art technology and the best facilities.
Dr. Knight has always had a commitment to excellence. While he was in undergraduate school, he won the Outstanding Student Award. He was also a member of Alpha Chi Junior Society, Phi Eta Sigma and Alpha Lamba Delta. Currently, Dr. Knight is a member of American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and California Orthopedic Association. Additionally, he has also received the honor of being one of the first surgeons to perform a successful toe to thumb transplantation.
Not only does Dr. Knight have a rather impressive resume, but he also has the kindness and compassion needed to be a great orthopedic wrist specialist.
