Microsurgery and Hand Reconstruction
Microsurgery and hand reconstruction involve some of the most complex procedures in medicine. Surgical procedures to reconstruct the hand in order to improve function and appearance after impairment due to traumatic injury, birth defects, or repetitive and straining daily activities requires extensive and specialized training.
A number of our plastic and reconstructive surgeons at the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group have been actively involved in the field of microsurgery and hand reconstruction for many years, and have contributed to major medical publications and presentational seminars discussing the latest techniques. Microsurgery, or microscopic vascular surgery, is often necessary for hand reconstruction in reattachment procedures in order to repair blood vessels. It uses specialized instruments and small needles with fine sutures to repair three-to-five millimeter blood vessels.
Our hand reconstruction surgeons have extensive skills in the field. Among our LIPSG partners are recipients of prestigious Fellowships at leading hand surgery institutions, including the Christine Kleinert Hand Surgery Fellowship in Louisville, Kentucky and the Fellowship in Hand Surgery at Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York City.

Microvascular surgery involves using specialized instruments and microscopic techniques to repair small blood vessels. It is a field of surgery that requires an extraordinary level of skill to perform procedures of great complexity. Our microvascular surgeons at LIPSG have decades of experience with these complicated procedures, and are known throughout the medical community for their research and success with this type of surgery.
Hand Reconstruction Surgery
Hand reconstruction surgery can correct damage or deformity in the hand with the replacement or repair of limbs, joints, skin, and other affected tissues. These procedures can also be beneficial to those suffering from common afflictions in the hands such as rheumatoid arthritis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
