What is Hand Surgery?

How is Hand Surgery Performed?
The first step in hand surgery is administering anesthesia. Then, your surgeon will make an incision in the hand, with the location depending on the type of condition being treated. He will repair the affected nerves and tendons, using a variety of techniques to ensure maximum range of movement, flexibility and a normal appearance. Some popular techniques we use include microsurgery, Z-plasty, and grafting of the bone, skin, nerves or other tissue. Finally, your surgeon will close the incision with sutures.
What Kind of Post-Operative Hand Surgery Care Can I Expect?
Following the procedure, your surgeon will place bandages and dressings on your hands to keep the area clean. He will give you specific instructions on how to clean the area, as well as which oral medications to take to prevent infection. Also, one of the most important parts of post-operative hand surgery care is physical therapy. Continued therapy will help restore the strength and mobility of your muscles.
As long as you maintain the proper therapy regimen, your results should get better with time. Typically, most hand surgery patients have fully restored function of their hands within several months to a year.
