Hand Surgery

Ideal Patient:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Dupuytren’s contracture
  • Trigger Finger
  • Congenital defects to the hand
  • Injuries to the hand

 

The Method:

Tremendous advances have been made in treating hand injuries, degenerative disorders and birth defects of the hand, improving both function and appearance. Hand surgery can repair injuries to the tendons, nerves, joints and blood vessels, fractured bones, burns, cuts and other injuries to the skin on the hand.

The Procedures:

  • Grafting: the transfer of skin, bone, nerves or other tissue from a healthy part of the body to repair the injured part.
  • Flap surgery: skin along with its underlying fat, blood vessels and muscle is moved from a healthy part of the body to the injured site.
  • Replantation or transplantation: restoring accidentally amputated fingers or hands using microsurgery.

 

“So good that even my dad went in”

Dr. Kagan is AWESOME. He did my DST eyelid procedure and I couldn’t be happier. My eyes look fantastic. So good that even my dad went in and had his done. His staff is always very welcoming and Dr. K has great bedside manners, is very experienced in what he does and was very informative! I didn’t expect to learn so much before my procedure and I am glad I did to better understand what he would exactly be doing. I will definitely be going back to Dr. Kagan for any future procedures and highly recommend him!
