Hand and Microsurgery

What is Hand and Microsurgery

The upper limbs comprising the hands and arms are important parts of the anatomy because of the multiple functions they perform on a daily basis. The hands and fingers are also at the core of the sense of touch, allowing us to reach out and conduct movements such as shaking hands, waving, holding a pen or holding a loved one’s hand. All that, however, is only at the surface. Beneath it all lies a complex network of nerves, muscles and blood vessels, all intertwined and working in perfect synchrony for each action we make. Like master craftsmen, our hand and microsurgery specialists conduct precise manoeuvres to get your limbs in tip-top order again.
