Hand surgery is at the crossroads of many specialties and aims to give back to the hand its function of a communication tool as well as a social link.

Its interest is focused on upper limb injuries whether they are traumatic, congenital, or degenerative. The bone, vascular, nerve, and plastic surgeries as well as microsurgery are all necessary skills to have to treat pathologies such as :

  • Congenital hand differences
  • Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Fracture and joint injuries (non union, malunion, vazcularised bone graft)
  • Joint replacement (elbow prosthesis, wrist, hand, fingers)
  • Trauma to tendons, nerves and secondary repairs (restoration of hand function after spinal cord injury, compartment syndrome, upper limb palsy)
  • Dupuytren’s contracture
  • Cutaneous lesions (tumours, cysts, soft tissue defect, burns and hypertrophic scares, bedsore) and their cover (skin graft, pedicle flaps), nails deformities
  • Microsurgery : replantations, free flap surgery, free vascularized toe transfer
  • Wrist and elbow conditions : arthroscopy, wrist and elbow joint replacement
  • Sports injuries to the hand and wrist
  • Work and leisure related condition
