What is Hand Surgery?

Hand Surgery is surgery of the hand, the wrist and the peripheral nerves of the upper limb. It also encompasses reconstructive surgery that improves upper limb function.

Many disorders and injuries of the hand are treated without surgery, using splints, taping, injections and hand physiotherapy.

A typical hand surgery operation is performed as a day-case under a regional anaesthetic (injected in the armpit or above the shoulder, to numb the entire arm); the patient is awake or lightly sedated, according to preference. General anaesthesia and/or overnight stay in hospital are unusual but are required for some operations on the hand, such as in children or when surgery is prolonged. A few operations can be performed under local anaesthesia (injected beneath the skin at the site of surgery).

Hand surgeons perform a wide variety of operations such as fracture repairs, releases, transfer and repairs of tendons and reconstruction of injuries, rheumatoid deformities and congenital defects. They also perform microsurgical reattachment of amputated digits and limbs, microsurgical reconstruction of soft tissues and bone, nerve reconstruction, and surgery to improve function in paralysed upper limbs.

The surgeon uses fine instruments to handle the delicate structures in the hand, and may use magnifying glasses (loupes) or an operating microscope for repair of the small nerves and arteries in the hand.

Post-operative treatment by a hand therapist is essential for optimal recovery after some types of hand surgery.

    Our Patient Says


    “What can be more curious than that the hand of a man, formed for grasping, that of a mole for digging, the leg of the horse, the paddle of the porpoise, and the wing of the bat, should all be constructed on the same pattern?”– Charles Darwin,Origin of Species

    Bats have them. So do cats, elephants and frogs. What are we talking about? Hands! But human hands are set apart from the rest. The dexterity of human hands has long been believed to be what really sets us apart from the animals and lies behind our success as a species.


    The thumb alone is controlled by nine separate muscles
    The hand has been used as a symbol of protection since ancient times
    The human hand is different to the hands or paws of other animals, because it has fingers and a thumb that can work together.
    Each finger has 3 bones and the thumb has two bones
    There are 17,000 touch receptors and free nerve endings found in the palm of human hands for passing on sensations of pressure, vibration and movement
    Scottish surgeon Sir Charles Bell wrote an entire book in 1833 praising human hands. It is called, The Hand: Its Mechanism and Vital Endowments, as Evincing Design

    The hands of our nearest relatives, the apes, also have thumbs like ours
    The hand is quite vulnerable since bones, nerve fibers, blood vessels and tendons are only protected by a very thin layer of fat and muscle
    The muscles found in human hands are supplied by three nerves: the radial nerve, the median nerve and the ulnar nerve

    Only the palm is protected by a strong pad of tendons (aponeurosis) for a powerful grip
    The left and right hand are both controlled by the opposite hemisphere of the brain
    Approximately ¼ of our entire body’s bones are found in human hands
    The fingers on just one hand will be extended and flexed about 25 MILLION times over the course of one lifetime
    The skin on your fingertips are extra sensitive to touch
    Each finger is supplied by four bundles of nerves and blood vessels
    Fingers have no muscles
    The wrinkles found on the back of fingers are the mark of where the skin is attached to the tendon
