Areas of Practice

 
Microsurgery

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

Hand surgery is a surgical profession focused on treating acute and chronic upper limb problems, with the aim of preserving or restoring optimal limb function. The profession deals with tissues of different character and function - skin, tendons, nerves, blood vessels, bones and joints.

This approach targets a wide variety of situations such as:

  • Treatment of acute upper limb injury

  • Restoration of function after an old upper limb injury

  • Nerve Recovery

  • Tendon transfers

  • Treatment of birth defects
