WHY NERVE REPAIR HAND SURGERY

 

Hand nerve repair surgery is a complex and delicate procedure that involves connecting damaged nerve endings, restoring nerve function, and repairing the nerve and surrounding tissue. Many patients who undergo this treatment experience unique, life-changing benefits.

  • Improves hand function – this treatment can help restore the ability to perform everyday activities such as grasping, pinching, and other fine motor skills.
  • Reduces pain – damage to nerves often causes pain, tingling, or numbness. Hand nerve repair surgery helps reduce or eliminate these unpleasant symptoms.
  • Improves appearance – helps improve the appearance of the hand and fingers by restoring the normal shape of the fingers and reducing scarring.
  • Improves emotional well-being – improved hand function and enhanced appearance can boost emotional well-being by reducing the stress and anxiety associated with not being able to perform everyday activities.

PROCEDURE APPROACH

Nerve repair hand surgery is an outpatient procedure that is typically performed at Dr. LaBarbera’s in-office operating room. During the procedure, Dr. LaBarbera creates an incision in the affected area to access the damaged nerve and then carefully suture the ends together. In some cases, the surgeon may need to transplant a healthy nerve from a donor site or use a nerve graft to bridge the gap between the damaged nerves

RECOVERY AFTER NERVE REPAIR

Recovery after a hand nerve repair procedure can vary depending on the severity of the injury and the extent of the repair. Generally, it can take several months for you to regain feeling in the hand and for the muscles to rebuild strength. Physical therapy may be necessary to help regain strength and mobility. Pain and swelling may occur during the recovery process but are easily managed with over-the-counter pain medications. It is important to follow the doctor’s instructions for activity level and follow-up care in order to ensure a seamless recovery process.
