What Are the Different Types of Procedures Used for Hand and Microvascular Surgery?

The Unit offers specialised services to treat complex cases of problems in the upper extremity, which include:

  • Limb Salvage Surgery - This type of surgery is performed over individuals who are affected by malignant tumours from the neck to hand and from the pelvis to foot. The Unit performs world-class limb-saving surgery in cases of bone tumour by replacing the lost bone with microvascular free bone transfer. It is a very complex operation that involves the replacement of a diseased bone and reconstruction of a functional limb by using-
    1. A metal implant 
    2. Allograft: a bone graft from another person 
    3. Allo-prosthetic composite: a combination of bone graft and metal implant

The major goal of this surgery is to remove tumour part in the hand or other body parts with minimal complications while maintaining acceptable function, durability and appearance of the limb.

  •  Microsurgical Replantation - It is a surgical reattachment of a finger, hand or arm that has been completely cut off from a person’s body. The goal of microsurgical replantation surgery is to provide patients with the ability to gain as much use of the injured limb as possible. The process involves high-end surgical microscopes that are used to replant amputated finger, hand, ear, penis or other body parts with a high success rate.
