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.
- 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.
