Benefits of Hand Reconstruction

The hands are important body parts as they provide vital functions in daily living. Accidents or biological incidents may occur that can leave the hands of an individual cosmetically unpleasant, deformed, or dysfunctional. Unfortunately, the debilitating consequences of hand injury and disease may harm the lifestyle of the individual that sustained damage to the hand. As such, the Des Moines hand surgeons of Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery work to reconstruct and restore function from the hand to the elbow.

Common Types of Hand Injuries

Damage to the hands can occur under a number of situations. The most common types of injuries to the hands and arms can be due to any of the following:

  • Arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Replantation of severed digits
  • Burns
  • Trigger finger release

When the injury or condition is severe and prohibits an individual from working, caring for themselves and family, or causes emotional distress, surgery may be an option to consider. Reconstructive surgery can help alleviate pain caused by a medical condition or injury as well as give a patient a better quality of life.
