Hand Surgery at the University of Michigan
Our hands are important tools that help us interact with the world around us. We use them to earn a living, to participate in sports and hobbies, and to care for ourselves and our families. When our hands become disabled, many aspects of our lives can be affected.
Hand Surgery has always been an important part of plastic surgery. The Michigan Plastic Surgery Team is dedicated to providing comprehensive care for all kinds of hand problems. We treat patients with traumatic injuries, arthritis, tendonitis, nerve compression, congenital conditions (abnormalities noted at birth), vascular or circulation problems, cancers of the hand, work-related problems, and others. Additional information on many of these problems is available by following the links below.
Beginning with your initial consultation, and concluding with your last visit, our team strives to make your experience a positive one. From the simplest fracture to the most complex reconstruction, our surgeons approach each case individually, with a specific plan designed to maximize the restoration of both form and function.
