Problems or diseases of the hands can cause a large amount of concern, as use of the hands are a large part of carrying out daily tasks. Even a small degree of discomfort or a mild deformity can cause serious consequences. At the beginning of the 19th century, major advances were being made in the realm of general surgery, but there was little attention placed on the hand. Since that time, great progress has been made in understanding and treating problems with the hand. Plastic surgeons perform surgery on the hand with an interest in improving not only the function of the hand, but also the appearance of the hand.
Many different types of hand surgery require the clinical and surgical expertise of a plastic surgeon. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have provided a brief overview.
