Hand trauma surgery details
The majority of hand trauma patients that undergo surgery will require several weeks of immobilization with splints and/or casts, as well as rehabilitation.
Hand trauma surgery will depend on the type of trauma that occurred, as well as the severity of it. For example, in some cases reconstruction may be necessary, while for trauma such as a burn, skin grafts are typical.
Both the functionality and the aesthetic appearance of the injured hand and fingers will be considered when determining the best surgical options.
