Hand Surgery Brisbane
Hand surgery encompasses a range of procedures designed to restore the function and appearance of the hand. We offer a number of different techniques and procedures to address a variety of hand conditions including:
Dupuytren’s ContractureDupuytren’s contracture is a condition caused by the thickening of the fibrous tissue layer under the skin of the palms. This disorder is characterised by curving of the fingers and can restrict the ability to use your hand and fingers. Our Specialist Plastic Surgeons can relieve this by surgically removing the thickened fibrous tissue that causes the contracture.
Ganglion CystsGanglion cysts are noncancerous lumps, found in the hands or wrists. These cysts are usually harmless and will often disappear with time, however in some cases surgical intervention is required to relieve pain and improve joint movement.
Trigger FingerTrigger finger is a condition that causes the fingers or thumb to get stuck in a bent position, resulting in tenderness, pain and limitations in movement. Trigger finger release surgery, performed by one of our Specialist Plastic Surgeons, works to widen the tendon sheath, allowing the fingers to move more easily.
Carpal Tunnel SyndromeCarpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the nerves that run through the wrist, which can lead to symptoms such as persistent pain, tingling and numbness. During carpal tunnel release, our Specialist Plastic Surgeons widen the passage in the carpal tunnel, in turn relieving pressure on the median nerve and easing symptoms.
