In cases of finger or hand amputation, your surgeon may be able to reattach (replant) your injured part. In many circumstances, this is not possible for a variety of patient and injury related reasons. If performed, replantation surgery is a highly specialized skill that requires microscopic instrumentation and a dedicated team approach, both within the hospital and upon your discharge (usually several days after injury). The Hand Center staff is dedicated to the care of these complex injuries and we put forth a team effort to help your hand to function as well as possible after injury. When replantation is not possible, there are a variety of prosthetic options that may improve the appearance and/or function of your hand.
