You need your hands to perform various activities in your everyday life, such as opening doors, writing, typing, cooking, brushing your teeth, operating tools, etc. You want to perform all your daily tasks effortlessly without pain. Any condition, congenital disability, or injury to your hands can significantly affect your quality of life.  

So, if you are facing any difficulties in your hands, reconstructive hand surgery can help restore the hand’s function and appearance. The surgery focuses on improving function and flexibility and reducing pain so that you can recover quickly and get back to your routine activities.

Quick Facts To Read Under Hand Reconstruction Surgery

What is Hand Reconstructive Surgery?

Reconstructive hand surgery is a common procedure used to restore function, relieve pain, and improve the hand’s appearance after disease, birth deformities, or trauma. It can also be used in traumatic cases, repairing an injured portion of the hand to reattach the severed part or transplanting a portion of a limb in a toe-to-thumb transplant. 

This surgery is preferred in patients with joint deformities, traumatic injuries, or conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and other hand disorders. Sometimes, normal wear-and-tear can also trigger pain in the hand that may also be relieved with surgery.

Emergencies such as crushing injuries or deep wounds may need surgery and hand reconstruction, followed by physiotherapy and wound care. Surgery is also considered the only option to correct birth abnormalities.

What conditions do we treat?

Here are some of the conditions for which Reconstructive Hand Surgery is considered the first choice of treatment:

Carpal tunnel syndrome: This condition is caused by long-term pressure on the median nerve in the wrist. Its symptoms include tingling sensations, pain, weakness, and aching or numbness in fingers.

Rheumatoid arthritis of the hands: It is caused by severe hand inflammation, which can cause pain, deformity in fingers, and impair movement.

Dupuytren’s contracture: It is a disabling disorder in which scar-like, thick tissue bands start forming within the palm and extend to the fingers. This condition can cause the fingers to bend into an abnormal position or restrict the movement of fingers or the entire hand.

Tumours in hand: A tumor is an abnormal lump or mass in the hands, fingers, wrists, or other body parts. It can be cancerous or non-cancerous. A tumour may put pressure on nerves and blood vessels in hand and trigger pain and swelling.

Tendon injury: Damage or strain in the tendons or muscles of the hand can occur from an injury that can happen during sudden falls or twisting. This injury can be extremely painful and may require a long time to heal.  

Swan Neck Deformities: This deformity is typically characterized by a swan neck appearance formed by bending the base of the finger, straightening out of the middle joint, and again bending the outermost joint. It can be caused by rheumatoid arthritis, looseness in fingers, chronic muscle spasms, or injury.  

Procedures we do under Hand Reconstructive Surgery:

  • Reconstructive hand surgery often includes repairing tendon lacerations. The procedure involves grafting a tendon to bridge the gap formed in the injury.
  • Fractures of the hand are surgically corrected by repositioning the displaced or broken bone fragments with screws, plates, or wires to hold the bones in their original place.
  • Swan neck deformities need a tendon graft placement to restore the function of the fingers. Extensive rehabilitation is required to restore mobility after this procedure.
  • For rheumatoid arthritis, reconstructive surgery is performed through joint replacement and soft tissue releases to improve the appearance and restore function. Depending on the area involved, joint fusions are sometimes needed.
  • Dupuytren’s disease requires extensive reconstruction with skin grafts or flaps once the involved tissue is removed.
  • Tumours in hand are removed, followed by reconstruction with grafts and soft tissue. If the tumour is malignant, wide excision or partial or complete amputation of tissue is performed, followed by placement of a restorative flap.
  • Reconstructive surgery is also necessary to correct congenital deformities. For example, it involves transposing any digit, such as an index finger, into a thumb when the thumb is not functioning or absent.

What to expect during the surgery?

If you experience unexplained pain or an unusual appearance in your hands, schedule a consultation with our specialists as soon as possible. The surgeon will examine your hand to determine your eligibility for hand reconstruction. Once the surgery is planned, you will be informed about any risks, complications, and steps involved. You will also be given some specific instructions before the surgery.

  • On the surgery day, you’ll be administered anaesthesia to avoid the feeling of pain throughout the procedure. Your surgeon will be using surgical techniques based on your case to achieve the desired results.  
  • Microsurgery for tendon repair involves using a surgical microscope to reconnect and repair hand or finger tendons.
  • If a less invasive surgery is done for carpal tunnel syndrome, an endoscope (a small tube with a tiny camera) will be used.
  • Skin grafts, bone grafts, or other tissue from healthy body parts may be used for reconstruction in complex surgical procedures.
