Types of Hand Surgeries
There are many kinds of hand surgeries that can be performed. Some are emergency hand surgeries, such as those due to an accident or injury where severed fingers or the entire hand may have to be repaired. Damaged arteries and tendons must be carefully operated on if the patient suffered a trauma to the hand.
Other types of hand surgeries include those that are repairing an ongoing injury (often due to repetitive motion injuries or age). Carpal tunnel surgery, tendon repair, ganglion removal and joint replacement are common hand surgeries. For any of these hand surgeries, the operating surgeon should have informed you of the various risks associated with your hand surgery.
