Hand Surgery Basics

Best hand surgery results in Kolkata India by Dr Srinjoy Saha

Hand surgery, a specialised reconstructive plastic surgery, effectively treats conditions that weaken function, strength and flexibility of hand, wrist and fingers; and diseases which cause hand pain. Such conditions usually occur after injuries and accidents or following abnormalities present at birth. Hand surgery is performed to restore the functionality of the hand and fingers back to normal. Hand surgery can treat plenty of hand, finger and wrist problems with good results.

Hand surgery - Tendon Repair required after Accidents

This is the most common injury to the hand and fingers following trauma. The ends of a

tendon usually retract from the site of original wound after the injury. A hand surgeon finds out these cut ends and restores the shape and strength of the tendon by suturing it in multiple layers. After road traffic accidents, big gaps between the tendon ends may occur, which cannot be sutured together. Tendon reconstruction is performed in these cases. Tendon from other parts of the body is taken and utilised to restore connection between the tendon ends. Alternatively, other tendons in the hand and forearm are redirected to take over the function of the injured or diseased tendons.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Patients may present to a hand surgeon with continuous pain or tingling sensation in the
hand. It occurs due to pressure on the median nerve when it passes through a tight tunnel present between the wrist and the hand. The only long-term solution for these patients is to relieve the pressure by surgical means. A hand surgeon makes a small incision in the middle of the palm to find the fibrous tissues that cause pressure on the nerve. These fibrous tissues are divided fully in order to relieve the pressure on the nerve. The results take a few days to appear, and are usually long lasting.

Finger & Hand Reconstruction

Tendon Repair or Reconstruction in Hand Surgery
When there is a big gap in the hand and fingers, it needs to be covered by flaps,

skin grafts or both. A hand surgeon may use different local and distant flaps for reconstructing these defects. These enable near normal recovery in function of the hand. Groin flaps; radial forearm flaps with or without segment of bone; islanded local flaps; local transposition flaps are typical examples amongst others. Shown here is the principle behind a neurovascular islanded flap for coverage of difficult finger defects. 

Congenital / Birth Deformity

Syndactyly - Fingers joined together from birth
Plenty of defects can occur at birth. Joining of the fingers by skin, bones or both is a
common condition, called Syndactyly. A hand surgeon separates the two fingers. Some plastic surgery techniques like skin grafting or local flap procedures may be performed. This makes both the separated fingers to have a full range of motion and a near-normal appearance. Growth of fingers is also possible after that. Another common defect is duplication of fingers, known as Polydactyly. Many types of hand surgery has been described to treat this properly. Macrodactyly is a condition where overgrowth of soft tissues of finger occur. A hand surgeon can reduce the size by operating on the bone and soft tissues.

Hand Contracture

Release of Contractures in Hand surgery
Dupuytren’s Contracture is a disease of the hand in which fibrous tissues in the upper parts of the hand become thick. Nodules and bands are formed, which cause bending of the fingers into an abnormal position. It restricts the movement of the fingers, which can be severe in late stages. A hand surgeon opens the skin overlying these thickened fibres and removes all nodules, bands and other thick fibres. Usually, the fingers can be lengthened fully immediately after the operation and maintained as such by physiotherapy.

Hand Surgery Costs

The costs of hand surgery includes surgeons' fees; hospital or surgical facility costs; anaesthesia costs; medicine costs; post-surgery splints or special garments costs & costs of medical tests. Thus, the costs can fluctuate depending on the hospital facility chosen and the type of hand surgery being performed.  Ultimately, your satisfaction after a well performed hand surgery is much more precious than the price paid for hand surgery - in fact, it is 'priceless'.
