Hand microsurgery is a type of specialised surgery that requires a high level of skill and precision.
It is used to repair small, intricate structures such as nerves, tendons, and blood vessels, including tumours and repairing small arteries.

What happens during hand microsurgery?
During hand microsurgery, a magnifying device is used to enable the surgeon to precisely see and manipulate very small structures.
By using this technique, hand microsurgery can result in better outcomes and faster healing times.
What is the recovery like for hand microsurgery?
During the recovery period, you may experience some swelling, pain, and stiffness in the hand and fingers.
You should rest your hand and keep it elevated to reduce swelling.
You may need to wear a splint or cast to immobilise the hand in order to prevent further injury.
Depending on the type of surgery, you may need to attend physical therapy sessions to help strengthen and restore the range of motion in your hand.
Finally, it is important to keep the surgical wound clean to help promote healing.
