Broken Hand or Finger

Here at Veda Medical, we can assist you with any type of break that occurs to your hand or your finger. If you are unsure if you have broken a finger or hand make sure to give us a call so we can help determine the best course of action!

Carpometacarpal Boss

A carpal boss is also known as a bossing. It is a bony overgrowth or lump on the back of the wrist at the base of the index (pointer finger) or long (middle finger) metacarpal bones where they join the carpal bones.

Cold Hands

Having cold hands at all times usually occur due to decreased blood flow to the hands. Our bodies keep our hands warm primarily by regulating the blood flow that travels from the heart, down the arm, all the way to our fingertips. More blood in the hands means pink, warmer hands; less blood flow means colder and sometimes painful hands.

Congenital Hand Differences

The term congenital hand difference refers to any condition of the hand and arm that is present at birth. Children can be born with many types of hand differences, and they vary greatly in how they impact the appearance and function of the hand.


While a fracture is a break in the bone, a sprain is a ligament that's been torn or stretched. These can be common injuries but when it comes to that hand, with the number of tiny bones and ligaments it is best to get an expert opinion on your injury. Dr. Mohan can help asses any suspected fracture or sprain and give you the best possible treatment plan for that particular injury. 

Golf Injuries to the Hand and Wrist

Sport-related injuries are very common to the wrist and hand, especially in sports such as Golf. 

Hand Infections

Hand infections happen when there is an injury to the skin of the hand, fingers, cuticle, or nail folds. Common causes include manicures, ingrown nails, bites, or puncture wounds. Infections may appear in the fold of your nail, at the tip of your finger, or anywhere on your hand. Although a hand infection can be uncomfortable and painful to the patient the good news is they are typically easy to treat when medical attention is sought quickly. 

Hand Tumors

Any lump or bump in your hand is a tumor regardless of what causes it. Hand tumors can occur on the skin, like a mole or a wart, or can occur underneath the skin in the soft tissue or even the bone.

Power Tool Injuries

Power saw injuries can be extremely common and can include tools such as a wet saw or even a lawn mower. When these occur it is imperative to seek immediate attention especially if a part of the hand or finger has been removed. 


Dupuytren’s Contracture

Dupuytren contracture is a painless condition that causes one or more fingers to bend toward the palm. The affected fingers can't straighten completely. Knots of tissue form under the skin. They eventually create a thick cord that can pull the fingers into a bent position.

Extensor Tendon Injuries/Flexor Tendon Injuries

Flexor/extensor tendon injuries typically occur from a cut on the palm side of your fingers, hand, wrist, or forearm. 

Fingertip Injury

Fingertip injuries can include cuts, scrapes, breaks, fractures, or fingertip loss. 

Jammed Finger

A jammed finger can occur while playing a sport or by a small accident. A jammed finger can cause bruising and inflammation of the finger.  

Mallet Finger

Mallet finger is an injury to the end of your finger that causes it to bend inwards towards your palm. You will not be able to straighten the end of your finger because the tendon connecting the muscle to the finger bone is stretched or torn.

Nail Bed Injuries

Nailbed injuries can occur from accidentally hammering your nail bed during construction work or even can happen at the nail salon. Nail bed injuries are common and you want to ensure that the nail bed stays intact and alive. At Veda Medical we will ensure the integrity of your nailbed remains intact as much as possible and give you the best course of treatment for your nailbed injury.

Trigger Finger

A trigger finger occurs when the tendon in the affected finger becomes inflamed. A condition in which a finger gets stuck in a bent position and then snaps straight.


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common condition affecting the wrist and hand, affecting approximately 0.1-10% of the population. Typically the result of irritation and swelling, CTS causes compression within the narrow carpal tunnel, located at the wrist. When this is compressed, a major nerve becomes damaged, temporarily or permanently, usually causing numbness, pain, tingling, and weakness in the thumb, index, and middle fingers.

De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis

DeQuervain’s Tendonitis is irritation and swelling of the tendons at the base of the thumb. It often causes pain along the thumb side of the wrist when clenching the hand into a fist and gripping or grasping objects. 

Ganglion Cysts

Ganglion Cysts are masses, or swellings, usually located near the joint, often occurring at the wrist joint. They resemble a cyst and may be either spongy or firm.  

Kienböcks Disease

Kienböck's disease is a condition where the blood supply to one of the small bones in the wrist, the lunate, is interrupted. If the blood supply is stooped for too long one or all parts of the bone can die. 

Scaphoid Fractures

Scaphoid fractures are among the most common types of carpal (wrist) bone fractures, involving the larger bone on the thumb side of the wrist. These typically occur as the result of a fall or other strong force placed on an outstretched hand.

Scaphoid Non-Union

This occurs when a wrist has been fractured and fails to heal. This can lead to limited wrist motion, arthritis, and pain. 

Wrist Sprain/Wrist Facture

Stretching or tearing of tissues (ligaments) connecting bones and joints in the wrist. A wrist fracture is when a patient has broken one of the small carpal bones in any wrist joint. 


Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

This occurs when the ulnar nerve becomes inflamed, swollen, or irritated. 

Elbow Facture

If you experience an elbow fracture you are likely to feel sudden and sharp pain and be unable to move your elbow. Symptoms can also include swelling and tenderness around the elbow. An X-ray or MRI can help diagnose an elbow fracture. 

Olecranon Bursitis

This is a sac that can fill up with a lot of a little amount of fluid at the tip of the elbow. The filling of fluid can cause pain and discomfort, especially when moving the elbow. 

Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a common overuse condition affecting the muscles and tendons of the forearm, where they attach at the outside (lateral) of the elbow. Golfer’s Elbow is also a common overuse condition but affects the muscles and tendons on the inside (medial) portion of the elbow and forearm. 



Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. This can be known as the “wear and tear” disease or arthritis that occurs due to overuse of body movements or simply old age. The cartilage within the joint begins to break down causing the actual bone around it to change and causing issues such as pain, inflammation, and swelling.

Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriatic Arthritis affects people with the skin condition psoriasis. Symptoms include; stiffness, swelling, joint pain, and inflammation.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory type of arthritis. It is generally associated with a genetic predisposition rather than an injury or wear and tear of the joints. Affecting nearly 1.3 million Americans, RA is most commonly seen in women and results in the rapid degeneration of joints, then subsequent bone damage.

Other Conditions Treated


A burn is an injury to the skin or other organic tissue primarily caused by heat or due to radiation, radioactivity, electricity, friction, or contact with chemicals. The severity or degree of the burn is contingent on the thickness and how far it has spread on the body. A first-degree burn can be very minor and can happen from a severe sunburn. A third or fourth-degree burn can be an extremely major injury that would require immediate medical attention. Burns can be extremely painful and can cause a lot of scarring. This scarring can also lead to skin issues in the future. Our skilled practitioners are equipped to help with a burn injury and help reduce the likelihood of scarring and infection.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is a chronic arm or leg pain developing after injury, surgery, stroke, or heart attack. The exact cause of complex regional pain syndrome isn’t well understood but may involve abnormal inflammation or nerve dysfunction. Complex regional pain is characterized by pain that is greater than would be expected from the injury that causes it. CRPS can often be overlooked by medical providers and can be hard to diagnose. At Veda Medical we always validate our patients and believe the symptoms they are experiencing are real and deserve attention and treatment.

Gout and Pseudogout

Both Gout and Psseuogout are a form of arthritis. This type of arthritis occurs when crystals form in the joints. These types of conditions can easily be treated through medication management.

Nerve Injuries

Never injuries can be extremely complex conditions to manage for the patient and can be difficult to diagnose. A nerve injury can occur after an accident or injury (such as a car accident), or long term wear and tear on the body. A nerve injury can also occur during a surgical procedure and can be a complication of whatever procedure was being performed. Nerves do have the ability to heal and it is imperative to diagnose nerve injuries quickly and therefore begin treatment as soon as possible.


Common warts are small, grainy skin growths that occur most often on your fingers or hands. Rough to the touch, common warts also often feature a pattern of tiny black dots, which are small, clotted blood vessels. Common warts are caused by a virus and are transmitted by touch. These are easily treated in the office.
