If you’re suffering from functional issues related to the hands and fingers and non-surgical solutions aren’t offering relief, you may need hand surgery. The term “hand surgery” covers a broad range of surgical procedures for various underlying conditions, such as nerve injuries, tendon damage, carpal tunnel syndrome, infections, metacarpal fractures, and more. Dr. Khan performs a thorough evaluation to identify the root cause of your hand and finger issues and curate a personalized hand surgery in Novi plan that restores optimal mobility and functionality.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the median nerve of the hand is compressed within the transverse carpal ligament at the wrist. The tunnel is tight and narrow, which is why carpal tunnel can occur so easily. You can go home the same day as the procedures, and physical therapy will start about a week after the surgery. The surgery helps patients regain feeling in their hands and feel more strength.
Nerve injuries are most common in hands after blunt trauma or sharp trauma. No matter what the situation is, nerve repair is a very sensitive and intense procedure that requires expert evaluation and treatment. Surgery involves exploration of the damaged nerve and removal of injured tissue or scar from nerve endings. Recovery periods are necessary after the procedure, but lengths vary for each injury.
In an attempt to preserve the quality of life of patients, we offer replantation of missing limbs. This usually needs to occur within hours of the injury or trauma. Tissue around the area may need to be repaired as well. These injuries are considered to be surgical emergencies and require fast action.
The hand is made up of 27 bones working together so your hand is capable of making all of the fine movements it is supposed to be able to. When one of those bones is injured, hand surgery in Novi may be required to repair the bone so it can keep working at full function. Recovery times vary per injury and between children and adults.
A ganglion cyst is a non-cancerous cyst near the wrist joint. The hand surgery in Novi involves removing the cyst as well as part of the joint capsule. The excision is an outpatient surgery, and normal activities can resume after around 2-6 weeks.
