(click for worldwide facilities list): Dramatic advances have been made in recent years in treating patients with hand injuries, degenerative disorders, and birth defects of the hand. At the forefront of these advances have been plastic surgeons-specialists whose major interest is improving both function and appearance. Plastic surgeons undergo intensive training in hand surgery, and they (along with orthopedic surgeons and general surgeons) treat patients with a wide range of hand problems.
Since hand surgery is performed primarily to correct physical abnormalities, it usually is covered by insurance.
The most common procedures in hand surgery are those done to repair injured hands, including injuries to the tendons, nerves, blood vessels, and joints; fractured bones; and burns, cuts, and other injuries to the skin. Modern techniques have greatly improved the surgeon's ability to restore function and appearance, even in severe injuries. Some common problems that may require hand surgery include: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Dupuytren's Contracture, and congenital deformities such as syndactyly in which two or more fingers are fused together, short, missing, or deformed fingers, immobile tendons, and abnormal nerves or blood vessels.
Among the techniques now used by plastic surgeons:
Grafting - the transfer of skin, bone, nerves, or other tissue from a healthy part of the body to repair the injured part;
Flap surgery - moving the skin along with its underlying fat, blood vessels, and muscle from a healthy part of the body to the injured site;
Replantation or transplantation - restoring accidentally amputated fingers or hands using microsurgery, an extremely precise and delicate surgery performed under magnification. Some injuries may require several operations over an extended period of time.
In many cases, surgery can restore a significant degree of feeling and function to injured hands. However, recovery may take months, and a period of hand therapy will most often be needed.
To enhance your recovery and give you the fullest possible use of your hand, your surgeon may recommend a course of rehabilitation (physical and occupational therapy) under the direction of a trained hand therapist. Your therapy may include hand exercises, heat, and massage therapy, electrical nerve stimulation, splinting, traction, and special wrappings to control swelling.
