Welcome to Idaho Shoulder to Hand!

Advanced Diagnostics, Treatment Solutions, and Surgery for Patients with Injuries and Conditions  of the Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hands.


At the Idaho Shoulder to Hand Center, we offer expertise in the diagnosis, treatment, and surgical repair of all conditions as a result of injuries to the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand. We are happy to consider patients of all ages.



Shoulder pain is one of the most common symptoms that lead patients to seek out a physician, particularly because of its ability to travel to other parts of the body, such as the elbow or neck.



Elbow injury, over-use, or wear and tear may cause pain, inflammation, and immobility. Often, injury occurs from a fall or sports injury, and may involve muscle strains, contusions, fractures, or tendon or nerve injuries.



Wrist injury, hand disorders, and elbow conditions are common and can cause pain, loss of sensation, loss of movement, and impaired function.

Research, Innovation, And Personalized Compassionate Care Continue To Be Driving Forces Of Our Center. We Are Extremely Proud To Have Created A Unique Orthopedic Center That Has Stayed Ahead Of The Curve And Earned The Respect Of Our National Peers, While Remaining Approachable To Any Patient Who Needs Our Help.

Patient Testimonials

Several years ago I had 2 torn tendons in my left hand which was caused by then going back and forth over rheumatoid growths in the wrist. He did an excellent job on the surgery and have never had any further problems with the hand. Very skillful closure of the wound. The incision closure is very fine and barely noticeable.

Dr.Nanavati treated me with encouragement during my treatment on my finger that was partially amputated during a work accident.His staff was absolutely accommodating with my appointments. I highly recommend him.

My Son went to Dr Nanavati because of a High School Football injury. He had surgery by Dr Nanavati followed by intense Physical Therapy for several months. He returned to football the following season and was 100% back to his pre injury status as Dr Nanavati stated he would be. He had an awesome season and was published as one of the TOP TACKLERS in the state of PA by a College Sports Magazine. He is pursuing a career as an Army Ranger thanks to the OUTSTANDING SURGICAL PERCISION & CARE THANK YOU
