One of the branches of plastic surgery is hand surgery.

The hand is a unique area of the human body, made up of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin and blood vessels.

All these elements must work properly so that the hand can also work perfectly!

The relationships between these structures are delicate and precise. A trauma or illness can affect one of these structures and produce hand impotence.

Afflictions that can be treated:

  • Carpal canal syndrome
  • Dupuytren’s disease
  • Tennis elbow;
  • Sports injuries of the hand and joints of the hand;
  • Fractures of the hand, joint of the hand and forearm;
  • Pain in the joints of the hands
  • Synovial cyst in the joints of the hands
  • Trauma on nerves, tendons and joints

Not all hand-related affections require surgical intervention; medication, immobilization, PRP therapy, kinetotherapy, intra-articular injections are sometimes recommended.

In any case, if the patient experiences pain in the fingers, hands, joints, forearm, it is advisable to contact a plastic surgeon.
