Hand Reconstruction

What is hand reconstruction?

Hand reconstruction is a group of surgeries that restore function to your hands after a traumatic injury or illness that impairs their muscles, bones, or nerves. Dr. Garcia frequently uses hand-reconstruction surgery to strengthen patients’ hands, restore their flexibility, and correct aesthetic abnormalities.

Because hand surgery is an option to treat many different issues, the surgeries vary in their steps. In general, hand surgery always requires some form of anesthesia to keep you pain-free as Dr. Garcia works. 

Once you’re prepped for surgery, Dr. Garcia makes an incision in your hands near the trauma or abnormality. He then reconnects detached tendons, releases pressure on your nerves, or otherwise reconstructs injured or abnormally attached tissues.


Why might I need hand reconstruction?

At Plastic Surgery Arts Center, Dr. Garcia uses hand-reconstruction surgeries to treat a multitude of injuries, musculoskeletal conditions, nerve conditions, and birth deformities. 

He may recommend hand reconstruction for:

  • Traumatic injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Dupuytren’s contracture
  • Fused fingers

Hand surgery is an effective treatment option to restore your ability to move your hand or feel sensations. In some instances, hand surgery reduces pain and discomfort.


Am I a good candidate for hand reconstruction?

Beyond the mere need for hand reconstruction to restore your ability to properly use your hands, there are a few other criteria that make you an ideal candidate for the surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Garcia evaluates your overall health and other factors to make sure the surgery is safe for you.

You are a candidate for hand-reconstruction surgery if you:

  • Don’t smoke
  • Don’t have any conditions that impair your healing abilities
  • Can commit to following Dr. Garcia’s treatment plan for you
  • Have a positive outlook

To achieve optimal results, you might need several hand-reconstruction surgeries over time. Dr. Garcia maps out your treatment plan according to the severity of your damage or condition. You may also need to undergo physical therapy between surgeries to make sure your hand works as well as it can. 

Your hands allow you to take control of your life. To regain that control with fully functional fingers, call Plastic Surgery Arts Center or book your hand-reconstruction consultation online today.
