Hand Surgery

With our Hands we understand the world- hand are true works of art and our most important instruments and tools, be it while eating, in the job or in sports.

Hand surgery is very important to us: we usually become aware of the significance of our hand only after malfunction or accidents have occurred. We rely on the sense of touch and the sensation of warmth and cold. It goes without saying that we operate keyboards, turn the pages of a book and shake the hands of our business partners and colleagues.

Our hands guide us through our daily activities thanks to our sense of touch and have to endure a lot. The human hand contains many muscles, bones and nerves, all of which serve to precisely execute each of our movements. Agility and well-being play an important role in our hands.

Diseases on the hands and their treatments

Hand surgery, one of the four pillars of plastic surgery, deals with the problems of the hand. In addition, with the surgical and non-surgical treatment of signs of wear and malfunctions as well as with the surgical reconstruction of injuries and diseases.

In the area of hand surgery, we treat various problems and illnesses on the hands of our patients: In a ganglion, an overbone, we remove the synovial fluid-filled protrusions of the synovial membranes either by draining the fluid or by performing and operative procedure. Ina a Ringbandstenose or trigger finger is a mechanical narrowing of the ring bands on the flexor side of the fingers, which can also be removed surgically. We also eliminate benign soft tissue tumors that are being operated on for medical problems such as pressure on the surrounding tissue or cosmetic reasons.

Age spots, dark colored spots on the skin, are often perceived as visual impairment and can be surgically removed. We also look after the aesthetics of an aging hand by tightening the skin with autologous fat. For this purpose, the patient is first sucked under local anesthetic fat at another body site, this processed accordingly and the injected into the hand area.

Dupuytren’s disease, the disease of connective tissue in the palm of the hand, can also be treated surgically when a conservative treatment is no longer an option. With help of a surgical treatment the Nodes and strands located in the inner surface of the hand can be removed. Of course, we also pay attention to minimally invasive procedures and the aesthetic preservation of the hand.
