What We Do

Hand Therapy helps patients in their recovery after they have had hand surgery. Our dedicated team is made up of hand therapists who are trained and certified in physiotherapy or occupational therapy. We work with patients on a one-on-one basis, assessing a patient, creating a plan for therapy, making custom splints and braces as needed and teaching exercises and other therapeutic techniques.

Our team is part of the multidisciplinary team in UHN's Hand Program. We work closely with the surgeon, inpatient nurse, inpatient social worker and orthopaedic technician in the Hand Program to provide timely and appropriate care for our patients so that th​​ey may achieve the best recovery outcomes.              ​
