Orthopaedic surgeons at Duke Orthopaedics perform microsurgery to treat nerve or vascular disorders of the hand and upper extremity.
Microsurgery is used, also, for the treatment of traumatic conditions such as nerve or blood vessel injuries, reattachment of severed limbs or parts, and during nerve or blood vessel reconstruction.
Duke has access to the most innovate surgical technology available, including high-powered microscopes that allow the surgeon to see the vessels and nerves that are too small to be repaired without magnification.
The stitches used to make necessary repairs are smaller than an eyelash, and some are impossible to see without magnification. Our surgeons have experience that allows them to perform this surgery with skill and precision.
As a major tertiary referral center, our surgeons have extensive experience and excellent outcomes with microsurgical techniques and have pioneered many procedures in this field.
