Miss Rupi Grewal, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Tonight's guest on Body Talk was Miss Rupi Grewal, who is one of the consultant orthopaedic surgeons at
Spire Hartswood Hospital. The subject was hand problems and she explained
how hand pain can be caused by arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and
repetitive strain injury. She also explained symptoms such as pins and needles and numbness
in the hand - and what these may indicate.
 
Some of the questions we covered were:
 
How did Rupi become an orthopaedic surgeon?
 
What are the conditions that can cause hand pain?
 
How common are these conditions?
 
Do they affect men and women equally?
 
Are they hereditary?
 
What can patients do to help themselves?
 
What the surgical and non-surgical treatments that may be help and how successful are these treatments?

We also had a question in through the chatroom:

Micaila asked; "My mum has Dupuytrans Disease, it's been operated on twice but recurred, what can be done?"
Rupi's answer; "Unfortunately not other than more surgery"
