Hand Surgery

Improve Strength, Function and Flexibility

Hand surgery can treat diseases that cause pain and impair the strength, function and flexibility of your wrist and fingers.

What results should I expect after hand surgery?

The final outcome of your hand surgery will develop over time. While advances in hand surgery can accomplish near miracles in reconstruction and replantation, your outcome cannot be fully predicted. For certain traumatic injuries, it may not be possible to achieve completely normal function.

If you had surgery to correct carpal tunnel syndrome, modifying work habits as recommended is vital to long-term improvement. Your final outcome may not be realized for several months. If your procedure involved microsurgery, a year is considered appropriate to fully reach restored function.
