Reasons to Undergo Hand Surgery
If you are experiencing pain, impaired strength, or weakness of the hands and fingers, you may need to undergo surgery to restore proper functioning of the hands. Some of the reasons to undergo hand surgery include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome(hand numbness or pain)
- Older looking hands(age related changes)
- Disabling hand disorder such as Dupuytren’s contracture
- Finger problems
Laser skin resurfacing treatments or fillers are non surgical treatment options for improving the appearance of the skin on the hands. We can put together a custom treatment plan to address all of your concerns and ensure optimal results.
How Hand Surgery is Performed
If you are undergoing reconstructive hand surgery in Camp Hill or Harrisburg, we may perform surgery under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Dr. Foley will use certain surgical techniques to repair tendons, relieve nerve pressure, repair birth deformities, or remove bone and skin tissue. Grafting procedures may be necessary to repair and restore the hands and fingers.
You will notice steady improvement and noticeable results as the swelling subsides. It can take several months to achieve the final result. We can perform non-surgical treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, or fillers to improve the appearance of the hands once the tissues are fully healed.
