What Do People Call A Hand Specialist
That's the name: Hand care/hand surgery developed as a sub-specialty during the second world war; we have no latin name. Hand surgeons come from orthopaedics, plastic and general surgery; we have additional training in the upper limb beyond our post-graduate residency. We treat problems of nerve, vessel, bone, joint, skin; we treat the upper limb and hand as a functional unit... And work with hand therapists.See 1 more doctor answer

Hopefully helpful: Usually a back specialist is an ortopaedic surgeon or neurosugeon who specializes in back disorders. There are other specialists who do non op care such as physiatrists, neurologists as well as some anesthesiologists who may do pain management.
Varied: There are many specialist associated with the spine. As an orthopedic spinal surgeon I am bias to that specialty as the premier source for treatment. But there are equally good neurosurgeon in the field. When surgery is not needed, there are interventional anesthesiologist who are trained in treatment of disorders that respond to injections. P.T, chiropractors, & pcp should be consulted.See 1 more doctor answer
A Doctor: All of us are trained to evaluate lymph nodes. Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react.
ENT: An ENT or an oral surgeon can help you with problems with your tongue.

I've dislocated my left pinkie 3 times in 6 months. I see a hand specialist on friday. What can be done to make it stop dislocating?
Buddy tape: If you are dislocation your finger joints that often you may be very loose jointed. If it occurs during activity you can buddy tape your pinky to your ring finger, so they move in unison. Buy some 1/4 inch tape and wrap gently above and below the joint involved. I strongly do suggest that you see a hand surgeon.
