Hand surgery can treat multiple common hand conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, ganglion or mucous cyst, and Dupuytren’s contracture. If one or both of your hands are impaired, surgery may improve your condition. Hand surgery can also address issues stemming from injuries to the tendons, nerves, blood vessels, joints, fractured bones, burns, cuts, and other injuries to the skin.
Our surgeons have undergone intensive training in hand surgery and can treat patients with a wide range of hand problems to improve functionality, quality of life, and confidence.
Benefits of Hand Surgery
Hand Surgery FAQs
Hand surgery is performed under anesthesia, so the procedure itself is completely painless. It is, however, common to experience some post-surgery pain. Your doctor will help you plan a postoperative pain management solution which could include medications and physical therapy.
Modern techniques, like endoscopic carpal tunnel release, have greatly improved the ability to restore hand function while minimizing pain and post-surgery downtime.
After surgery, bandages or dressing may be applied to keep the surgical site clean. Additionally, splints may be used if your surgeon deems it necessary.
As with other surgeries, it is important to follow all postoperative instructions to optimize results including site cleansing, taking prescribed medications, and hand exercises. Dr. Klenke and her team will decide if hand therapy may benefit you by helping restore strength, flexibility, and sensation.
The amount of time it takes to recover from hand surgery varies from patient to patient. Your surgeon will discuss the specific recovery time associated with your hand surgery and recommend an aftercare regime.
