The Hand and Elbow Surgery Center here at the Ohio State University Department of Plastic Surgery is composed of specialty-trained plastic and reconstructive surgeons who can help you restore both form and function to your hands. Our doctors are experienced with an array of conditions affecting the hands and elbows, and we employ state-of-the-art surgical techniques to help patients who suffer from arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, bent or deformed hands and fingers, Tennis Elbow, hands that have been affected by traumatic injury, and other conditions.
Not only can hand surgery help increase performance of hands that have lost functionality, it can also provide cosmetic benefits. Our hand surgery team offers procedures that can replace or attach skin from grafts taken elsewhere on the body; realign fractured bones; repair tendons and nerves; improve compartment syndromes affecting the hands; replace joints; and even provide replantation for fingers or hands that have been severely affected by trauma.
Doctors at the OSU Department of Plastic Surgery are experts in the complex techniques and procedures that are necessary to navigate the web of ligaments, muscles, bones, nerves, and structures within the hand. Our team can improve function in your hands, alleviate pain, and renew their appearance.
