Hand and Wrist Microsurgery
Our hands and wrists are some of the most important anatomical structures we possess. From cooking your favorite meal to playing piano, or even performing the most advanced surgeries, you need healthy hands and wrists. When you experience problems with your hands or wrists, we at Upstate Orthopedics can help you find much needed relief.
Microsurgery refers to the use of a microscope. This helps the surgeons look at the tiny delicate parts in your body and repair them precisely, e.g., repairing blood vessels. Upstate Orthopedics is proud to have the most talented hand surgeons in Central New York. We perform microsurgery procedures to manage and repair injured hands or wrists, including tendons, nerves, blood vessels, and joints.
During hand microsurgery, our surgeons utilize specialized operating microscopes and precision instruments to perform intricate operations on blood vessels, nerves, and soft tissues. A high level of training and years of experience are necessary to perform successful microsurgery, qualities that the surgeons at Upstate Orthopedics thoroughly possess.
Microsurgery of the hand and wrist may be used to treat traumatic injuries such as a severed thumb or finger, severe laceration of a blood vessel, or a serious tendon or nerve injury. Microsurgery procedures may include:
- Hand and finger reconstruction to salvage severely injured fingers and wrists
- Replantation to reattach severed thumbs and fingers
- Free tissue transfers for increased healing of severe and non-united fractures
- Nerve repair to restore motion and sensation
