Your First Choice for Wrist & Hand Surgery in Houston

We use our hands for everything. Therefore, it can be easy to take our hands’ strength and sense of touch for granted—that is, until an accident, injury, or complication occurs. Pain in your hand, wrist, or elbow can hinder your ability to complete even the most basic tasks, thereby reducing your quality of life.

Here at Hand & Microsurgery Associates, we believe that no one should have to live a lesser version of their life due to pain in their upper extremities. For this reason, our services—including hand surgery in Houston—are designed to relieve your discomfort so that you can get back to living.

Relief from Wrist & Hand Pain

Sustaining an injury to your hand, wrist, or elbow can lead to constant pain, weakness, and numbness. However, some pain is not a result of a recent accident but the result of a chronic condition. Regardless of the source of your discomfort, it’s crucial not to ignore these symptoms as they may be indicative of more severe conditions, such as damaged tendons or peripheral neuropathy. The longer you ignore these symptoms, the more likely it is that they’ll worsen. Therefore, it’s important to seek treatment and pain relief from a qualified hand surgeon as soon as possible.

About Our Practice

Hand & Microsurgery Associates is led by John T. Burns, M.D.—a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in hand joint surgery. Dr. Burns is a leading name when it comes to treating hand, wrist, and upper extremity problems in both children and adults. He also offers microsurgery using sophisticated methods and technology to restore the functionality and structure of hands and extremities.


Under Dr. Burn’s leadership, we have earned a positive reputation for our knowledgeable and compassionate approach to care. You can count on us to do everything in our power to alleviate your pain, restore a sense of normalcy, and improve your quality of life.


Our office in Webster serves the Greater Houston Metroplex from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Same-day appointments are also available. Our professionals are fluent in both English and Spanish.
