Understanding Hand Injuries Involving Tendons and Nerves
Hand injuries can result from various causes, such as accidents, sports-related incidents, or occupational hazards. Injuries that involve tendons and nerves in the hand can significantly impact hand function, dexterity, and sensation. Immediate and appropriate treatment is crucial to optimize the chances of restoring hand function and achieving the best possible outcomes.
Our Hand Injury Repair Services
At our clinic, we provide a range of specialized services for repairing hand injuries involving tendons and nerves, including:
- Tendon Repair: Tendons are vital fibrous tissues that connect muscles to bones, enabling movement. When tendons in the hand are injured or severed, it can lead to limited hand movement and impaired function. Our skilled plastic surgeons are experienced in performing tendon repair procedures, which involve reattaching or suturing the damaged tendon ends to facilitate healing and restore hand function.
- Nerve Repair: Nerves play a crucial role in transmitting signals between the hand and the brain, enabling sensation and motor function. When nerves in the hand are injured or severed, it can result in loss of feeling, weakness, or paralysis. Our plastic surgeons are skilled in nerve repair techniques, including microsurgical procedures, which involve delicately reconnecting the damaged nerve ends to promote nerve regeneration and restore sensation and motor control.
- Tendon Transfer: In cases where a tendon is severely damaged and cannot be repaired, tendon transfer surgery may be considered. Tendon transfer involves redirecting a healthy tendon from another part of the body to replace the damaged or non-functional tendon in the hand. This procedure helps restore hand functionality and improves grip strength.
- Rehabilitation and Therapy: Following hand injury repairs, rehabilitation and therapy play a vital role in the recovery process. Our team works closely with hand therapists who specialize in hand rehabilitation. They will design a customized therapy program to help restore hand strength, flexibility, and function.
