Advanced Limb Reconstruction Hand Surgery
Advanced limb reconstruction is a specialty of ours. Surgeries we offer range from repairs of simple lacerations to arm replantation after amputation. Some of the advanced techniques in which I have significant experience and training include microsurgical reconstructions (replantations, free flap tissue transfer, toe to hand transfers, nerve repairs), soft tissue flap reconstructions, burn reconstructions, bone grafting and treatment of complicated infections. Some of the most challenging advanced reconstructions occur after major injury or disease and involve multiple tissue types such as skin, tendon, bone and joint. Our surgical and support teams have the most experience in the region with these types of reconstructions and are often able to restore a functional limb even in the most dire circumstances. We work closely with excellent consulting services such as orthopedic surgery, infectious disease, pain management and physical medicine and rehabilitation services, including occupational and physical therapy. We are a Level I Trauma center and are prepared to handle the most critically ill patients. We have the support of a full service burn unit.
These surgeries are usually covered by insurance. More information about the consultation can be found on the Consultation Page.
