Your Destination for Hand and Wrist Care!

Welcome to the Hand Institute of Charleston, your destination for hand and wrist care! Our board-certified fellowship trained Orthopedic Hand and Wrist Surgeons, Kyle Kokko MD PhD, and Eric Angermeier MD, offer specialized and customized state-of-the-art operative and non-operative treatment options for all of your hand and wrist problems. When you need hand surgery in Mount Pleasant, SC, count on the orthopedic hand and wrist surgeons at the Hand Institute of Charleston.

If you’re suffering from wrist pain, hand stiffness, or numbness in the hand, rely on the Hand Institute of Charleston to assess your condition and determine the best treatment. As passionate and compassionate surgeons, we always listen to our patients and uncover their needs and desired outcome from treatment. We aim to heal efficiently and correctly.

There is a myriad of different causes for hand and wrist pain. A few causes for pain could be:

  • Carpal tunnel
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Hand/wrist fractures

Our hand surgeons break down the cause of pain in reference to the area that hurts. Causes of wrist pain differ greatly from the causes of pain in the palm of the hand, or even pain in the base of the fingers. At our medical center, we have the knowledge and experience to properly fix your pain and treat the cause accordingly.

At the Hand Institute of Charleston, we believe in a comprehensive team approach to care and have assembled a dedicated team of experienced hand health professionals in order to assist you through every step of the healing process. We also believe that the most important member of the team is YOU! Whether you are suffering from a hand or wrist injury, carpal tunnel, trigger finger, or painful arthritis, we can’t wait to welcome you to our team as we start down the road to recovery together!
