Hand Surgery

Hand Surgery Auckland by Plastic Surgeon

Broadly speaking Plastic Surgical Hand surgery may be considered in two groups: acute – emergency surgery or elective – arranged surgery.

Acute Hand Surgery: includes the repair of soft tissue wounds, burn management, abscess drainage, foreign body removal, fracture management, tendon-nerve-blood vessel repair. 

Elective Hand Surgery: constitutes the bulk of our hand surgery activity and commonly includes

  • Carpal Tunnel Decompression
  • Dupuytrens Contracture Release
  • Trigger Finger-
  • De Quervains Tendon Sheath Release,
  • Tendon Grafting
  • Ligament Repair
  • Finger Joint Stabilisation – Fusion Replacement,
  • Tumour or Ganglion Removal

In summary, we have developed a wealth of knowledge, experience and skill in the complex field of hand surgery.

Working closely with hand therapists and other professionals, our aims are clear: to restore function and wherever possible, to enhance appearance as well.
