Upper Extremity Service
Hand surgery has long been an area of interest for plastic surgeons. We treat hand problems related to injury, repetitive stress, and soft tissue abnormalities. Your plastic surgeon can advise you regarding the appropriate technique for you, as well as the risks and complications.
Upper extremity wounds are frequently treated by plastic surgeons. Working with a team of physicians and other health care professionals, our plastic surgeons can advise you regarding the appropriate technique for you.
Microsurgery refers to a portion of our plastic surgical specialty based on the ability to sew together very small blood vessels and nerves. Using microsurgical techniques, our surgeons can transfer large tissue segments to distant sites in the body. This is done by first cutting and then restoring the blood supply to the transferred tissue. Microsurgical techniques have revolutionized treatment of large wounds all over the body. These techniques are particularly useful in breast, head and neck, and lower extremity reconstruction. Your plastic surgeon can advise you regarding the appropriate technique for you, as well as the risks and complications.
