Hand Surgery by Dr Mark Gittos – Plastic Surgeon in Auckland NZ

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.  Typically done in Emergency Departments at Public Hospitals.

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

Dr Gittos has 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.
