Hand Reconstruction Is A Delicate Surgical Procedure.

Your hands are made up of 27 different bones, and a complex network of muscles and ligaments that allow for mobility and dexterity. When the hand structure is damaged, it may be necessary to undergo surgery to restore as much function as is possible, based on the extent of the condition. This is a specialized surgery that must be performed with extreme precision to achieve the best possible outcome. 

Hand conditions and injuries

When the hand structure is impaired, it impacts every facet of your life. The inability to grip items, ongoing pain, or damaged bones, ligaments or muscles can make it impossible to live life to the fullest. 

Carpal tunnel syndrome:

This condition is associated with nerve irritation to the median nerve at the wrist. The symptoms can include reduced finger sensation, numbness, hand weakness, and pain.


CMCJ refers to arthritis affecting the base of the thumb (carpometacarpal). This condition affects the ability to grasp and hold any item, along with pain and stiffness, weak grip, and swelling, and may include visual changes in the thumb appearance over time. 

Dupuytren’s contracture:

This hand condition involves the hand tissues becoming thicker, at the fingers, thumbs, or palm. The thickened tissues develop lumps or tight cords of hand tissue that cause the hands to continually contract.

Rheumatoid arthritis:

This inflammatory condition can affect the joints in the hands, leading to pain, distorted hand and finger shape, stiffness, nodules, along with joint swelling at fingers and wrist and hand mobility issues.

Trigger finger, thumb:

This is a hand condition that affects the tendons that move the fingers and thumb. As the tendons become thicker, they can lock fingers or hands into a bent position that can only be released by applying pressure with your other hand to attempt to straighten it. With this condition, it becomes difficult to grip any item. The initial symptom is typically a clicking sensation.
