Hand Doctor in North Smithfield, RI
I believe in relieving numbness in hand symptoms without the need for surgery. Most of my patients benefit from a choice of nonsurgical treatments.
- I advise my patients the proper way and times to wear a splint, which can be purchased from your local drugstore.
- Some patients also benefit from therapy. I can refer you to a therapist who will use a combination of special exercises and muscle massages to make your numbness in hand feel better without a trip to the operating room.
- Many patients also benefit from Cortisone. The simple treatment performed in my office relieves pain and inflammation caused by numbness in hands. The side effects are minimal or nonexistent.
Help With Numbess and Tingling
My goal in life is simple: I help people with numbness and tingling in their hands feel better without surgery.
I’m Dr. Thomas McGunigal and I’ve treated more than 10,000 patients with numbness and tingling, or a pins-and-needles feeling in the hands. I’ve helped them sleep better at night, or perform daily activities such as driving, reading and opening jars, without pain.
At my northern Rhode Island medical practice, I endeavor to make a personal connection with every individual. I’ll diagnose and treat you. My philosophy means that I, not a technician, will conduct the best, objective diagnostic test to determine the cause and severity of the numbness in your hands and discuss your treatment options. Most patients receive an evaluation, diagnostic test and treatment in two hours or less in a relaxed atmosphere right in my office.
My services are covered by health insurance plans and, in most cases, a physician referral is not necessary. I offer day and evening appointments for your convenience and you’ll find ample free parking at my office in North Smithfield, R.I.
