I have had two procedures done by Dr. Samra, rhinoplasty in 2000 and breast augmentation this year. There arent even words to describe how happy I am with every single thing about Dr. Samra and his office.
Hand surgery procedures are usually performed to repair injured hands. These include injuries to the tendons, nerves, blood vessels, joints, as well as fractured bones, burns, cuts, and skin wounds. Modern techniques have greatly improved the surgeon’s ability to restore function and appearance, even in severe injuries. Among the techniques now used by hand surgeons are:
- Grafting – the transfer of skin, bone, nerves, or other tissue from a healthy part of the body to the injured part
- Flap surgery – moving the skin, along with its underlying fat, blood vessels, and muscle, from a healthy part of the body to the injured site
- Replantation or transplantation – restoring amputated fingers or hands using microsurgery, an extremely precise and delicate surgery performed under magnification
Some injuries may require several operations over an extended period of time. In many cases, surgery may restore a significant degree of feeling and function to injured hands, however, recovery may take months, and a period of hand therapy will most often be needed.
