Hand Reconstruction

Our hand surgeons provide reconstruction after industrial accidents or injuries including those caused by fireworks, snow blowers, saws, and other devices. Reconstruction of the hand may be required after crush injuries, the detachment of fingers or hands, or resulting from nerve damage. Procedures may include nerve and tendon repair, reattachment of limbs, and resetting fractures.

Early interventions is a key component as it can prevent problems related to extended immobilization. Both hand surgery and therapy play a significant part in the functional result of the hand. Initial treatments including dressing changes, wound care, various exercises and patient education. Progress is closely monitored and communicated to all team members.
