Microvascular surgery is the transferring of skin, bone, or muscle that is freed from the body, requiring reconstruction of the artery and vein. Often used in hand reconstruction surgery and replantation procedures involving the reattachment of limbs or fingers, microvascular surgery is considered a highly complex procedure that must be performed by experienced and skilled surgeons.
The Long Island Plastic Surgical Group is home to the Microsurgery and Hand Reconstruction Center of Excellence, and a number of our plastic and reconstructive surgeons have been actively involved in the field of microsurgery and hand reconstruction for many years, contributing to major medical publications and presentational seminars discussing the latest techniques. 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.
