The orthopedic surgeon at Riverview Health can determine the most effective hand treatment for your condition, which may include the following hand surgery procedures:
While some of our hand surgery procedures require a hospital stay, others are outpatient procedures and will allow you to go home the same day. Before surgery, your doctor may give you a general anesthesia to put you in a deep sleep, or you may only need regional anesthesia to numb the area.
Ice, rest, compression and elevation are all important to your postoperative care. Ask your doctor about the best way to care for your hand, especially if you have bandages, dressings, stitches or staples.
As your hand heals, you may need to wear a splint to keep your hand or wrist stable. Our doctors may also recommend physical therapy or provide certain stretches and exercises to do at home to help regain your mobility. Full hand surgery recovery can take a few days or several months, depending on the procedure.
