For this reason, it is also called "Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery" in many countries.
It is also concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of lower extremity; leg, foot diseases and injuries, vascular, nerve and tendon incisions, congenital disorders. A good hand surgeon should have a good command of microsurgery and reconstructive surgery. Surgical treatment of the vessels and nerves in these areas requires looking through the operating microscope, magnifying the surgical field and tissues, and using fine-tipped micro instruments. For this reason, hand surgery and microsurgery are often intertwined branches of surgery.
Physical therapy and rehabilitation, which are initiated early and may be required for a long time, play a critical role in achieving good results after hand surgery. Many factors such as the location of the operated area, the characteristics of the tissue, the age of the patient, and the success of physical therapy are important in recovery. In some reconstructive surgeries, it is not possible to achieve excellent results despite successful surgery and physical therapy, and rehabilitation. In this case, the aim is to restore the patient to the best possible hand function.
