Areas of Practice


Microsurgery is a type of surgery that is performed under a microscope on small blood vessels or nerves. This technique allows a tissue (skin, muscle, bone) to be transferred from one place in the body to another for the purpose of:

  • Improvement of function by muscle transfers

  • Tissue coverage after trauma, tumor or infection

  • Preserving an organ that is in danger

  • amputated organ transplants

  • Complex bone grafts for the treatment of deficiency or lack of connection after fracture

Peripheral nerve surgery

Peripheral Nerve Surgery is a field that incorporates surgical capabilities from the areas of hand surgery, neurosurgery and plastic surgery. The accumulated knowledge gained in recent years allows for the recovery of both post-acute and chronic injury related to the peripheral nervous system. Nerve transfer surgery is an important tool in surgical treatment.

  • Treatment of upper or lower limb nerve compression neuropathies

  • Treatment following  injury to the brachial plexus, acute or late

  • Restoration of function after peripheral nerve injury

  • Restoration of upper limb function after spinal cord injury

  • Surgical treatment of pain caused by peripheral nerve injury

Hand Surgery

  • Treatment of acute upper limb injury

  • Restoration of function after an old upper limb injury

  • Nerve Recovery
