HAND SURGERY UNIT

 

 

Our hands are the external extensions of our brain that do what our brains think. Hand and wrist, which have an important place in daily life activities, have carefully balanced joints. The hand is the most mobile part of our arm. No other living thing other than man has an organ that functions as perfectly as the hand. Our hand, which is one of the most developed organs of the human body, is also the organ that is most susceptible to injury. Since the structures at hand are smaller and more delicate, their treatment requires a separate training and experience. Depending on the characteristics of the deformed structures in the hand, surgery may be required, often with magnifying glasses called loops or microsurgery under a microscope for greater magnification. Common diseases of the hand treated in this unit are:

·  Congenital hand diseases (syndactylia, polydactyly, finger deformities)

·  Congenital diseases of the hand and forearm (absence of radius, absence of ulna)

·  Birth paralysis (early and late treatments)

·  Nerve compression (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Ulnar Cubital Tunnel Syndrome)

·  Tendon compressions (Tenosynovitis, De Quervain's disease)

·  Dupuytren's contracture

·  Hand infections

·  Rheumatic hand diseases

·  Calcification of hand and wrist joints

·  Tendon, vascular and nerve injuries

·  All types of nerve palsy

•  Hand and forearm tumors, ganglia

·  Hand, wrist and forearm fractures and dislocations

·  Nonunion or improper union of hand and forearm fractures,

·  Deformities and shortness of the hand and forearm 

The rehabilitation of the hands treated surgically by the experienced specialists of our Hand Surgery unit is carried out by the experienced Ortopedia Hand Rehabilitation team, which is a complement and sine qua non of hand surgery.
