Hand Surgery

Emory plastic and reconstructive surgeons treat trauma, congenital deformities and vascular injuries to the hand, wrists, forearms, and sometimes the shoulders and elbows using traditional and innovative microsurgical techniques which can reattach amputated fingers or limbs. For very young patients, specialists design a plan for surgical intervention that corresponds to developmental milestones in hand-to-eye coordination and that makes use of the flexibility of the growing skeleton, thereby minimizing psychological damage. Most hand surgery procedures are done on an outpatient basis using local anesthetic and IV sedation. Recovery times differ depending on the type of hand surgery received. Post-op physical therapy is often required.
