What is Hand Surgery?
Hand surgery is any medical procedure that treats conditions of the hands, wrists, forearms, or fingers. It is most commonly performed by highly trained and accredited hand surgeons. Patients of all ages can undergo hand surgery. Hand surgery can be invasive, or it can be minimally-invasive. It all depends on the situation.
Hand surgery is used to treat a host of illnesses and injuries to the hand, forearm, fingers, and wrist. Some of the most common conditions addressed with it include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Wrist pain
- Cuts on the finger and hand
- Sports injuries to the hand or wrist
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Our experienced hand surgeon in Michigan will diagnose your condition and determine what kind of operation would best suit your needs.
How is Hand Surgery Performed?
Most hand surgeries can be performed relatively quickly and require only minimal cutting. You will first be sedated with a certain type of anesthesia. During the procedure, our doctor will repair the bone, muscle, tendon, ligament, nerves, blood vessels, or other structures that contribute to your illness or injury.
Depending on the type of surgery that was performed, you may be allowed to go home with very little aftercare instructions. Or you may need to follow our hand surgeon’s instructions to the letter to enjoy optimal results. Again, it depends on the situation.
Hand surgery can help you regain normal use of your hands, wrists, forearms, and fingers. The type of surgery that you will undergo depends on the condition from which you suffer.
