Intricate in design and function, the hand is an amazing work of anatomy. Form follows function in the hand; therefore, any injury to the underlying structures of the hand carries the potential for serious handicap. To reduce this risk, even the smallest hand injuries require a good medical evaluation. The hand consists of 38 bones; 10 metacarpal bones and 28 phalanges (finger bones).
