About Us

Welcome to Southern Illinois Hand Center

The Southern Illinois Hand Center was established in 1990 as a comprehensive center dedicated solely to the treatment and care of hand and wrist problems. The center has 3 fellowship trained hand surgeons. Dr. Naam and Dr. Stewart are board certified in hand surgery and Dr. Sasso is board certified in orthopedics.

The center remains as the only institution in Southern Illinois exclusively dedicated to the care of patients with wrist and hand problems.

In our office our patients are always evaluated by one of our fellowship trained hand surgeons. We do not use mid level providers, nurse practitioners, nor physician assistants to evaluate our patients. Wrist and hand conditions can be very complex and challenging and therefore our philosophy is to insure our patients are evaluated by the most experienced specialists.

The center also has x-ray facilities and full spectrum hand therapy to facilitate the expeditious evaluation and treatment of our patients. The hand therapy department, Working Hands, is staffed by 2 certified hand therapists (CHT).
