At Regency Specialties, we are proud to have an excellent team of skilled and experienced hand surgeons to address trauma hand surgery. This addresses a wide range of both minor and severe injuries which require extensive treatment and/or reconstruction of the hand and upper arm. 

What does trauma hand surgery accomplish?

Trauma hand surgery restores the functionality and structure of the hand, fingers, and wrist in the event of a traumatic injury, infection, medical condition, or birth defect. It is performed either as an emergency surgery or as an elective surgery. We are proud to have the top hand surgeons in Phoenix, Buckeye, Surprise, and the nearby area who are able to determine the cause of condition and address it with advanced treatments or surgical techniques.

What does hand trauma entail?

Hand trauma can include, but is not limited to, any of the following:

  • Hand pain
  • Fractures
  • Burns
  • Joint damage
  • Crush injuries
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Nerve and vessel injuries
  • Simple and complex lacerations

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.

Types of trauma hand surgery

When treating hand trauma, there are specific types of hand surgery that may be performed. These include:

  • Skin grafts and flaps: Skin will be taken from one part of the body to replace the missing skin of the hand.
  • Tendon repair: This procedure is particularly complex and requires the skill of a highly trained hand surgeon.
  • Nerve repair: This surgery is performed so that the hand may maintain feeling
  • Fasciotomy: This surgery is performed to help treat a painful condition that develops when swelling and increased pressure occurs in a small space within the body.
  • Joint replacement: Typically done in severe cases of hand arthritis, joint replacement places a new joint made of metal, plastic, silicone, or the body’s own tissue.
  • Surgical draining: This procedure is done to prevent infection.
    Replantation: This surgery re-attaches a body part that has been completely detached from the body.

Choosing the right surgeon

Your hands are incredibly important, and it’s crucial to work with a trauma hand surgeon in the event of an injury or medical condition that threatens the use of your hands. 

Trauma hand surgery should only be performed by a certified hand trauma surgeon who has been trained to understand the complexities of the ligaments, tendons, muscles, bones, nerves, skin, joints, and blood vessels of the hand, and who has plenty of experience in hand trauma. 

At Regency Specialties, we are extremely proud to have the best trauma hand surgery specialists in Phoenix, Buckeye, Surprise, and the surrounding areas.
