Whether it is the loss of a finger using a table saw, cutting your thumb while filleting fish, or cutting your finger while doing dishes, an injury to the hand can make normal tasks extremely difficult and may leave you feeling helpless. Our Midsota surgeons understand how much pain or tingling in the elbow, wrist, hand or finger can interfere with your life. It is our job to provide you with the highest quality of service and expertise to help you go beyond pain and return to doing what matters most in your life.

Is hand surgery for me?

There are several reasons why a person may consider reconstructive hand surgery. Our experienced team of Midsota hand surgeons and occupational therapists have the knowledge and skills to diagnose and treat a wide range of common hand problems.

You may be a good candidate for reconstructive hand surgery if you suffer from one or more of the following conditions:

  • Broken bones or dislocations
  • Strains/sprains
  • Tendons and nerve injuries
  • Amputations
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture
  • Mallet injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Arthritis (osteo or rheumatoid)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Repetitive injuries (tennis elbow, deQuervain’s, etc.)

During your hand surgery consultation, we will carefully observe the condition of your hand to determine the best treatment plan for you. We are committed to providing you with what you need to fix your most valuable tools.

What are the benefits of hand reconstruction?

Men and women who undergo hand reconstruction at Midsota Plastic Surgeons often regain significant or full mobility of their hands, wrists, or elbows. These procedures can help you get back to doing the things you love without the pain or discomfort you experienced before. Reconstructive procedures may also be covered by insurance. At Midsota Hand Center, we design personalized treatment therapies that meet the specific needs of our patients and help them return to their daily activities as soon as possible.

How is hand surgery performed?

There are various reconstructive procedures that may be performed to correct your specific condition. Your Midsota plastic surgery will explain your surgery in detail during your consultation.

How long does hand surgery take?

The length of your hand surgery will depend on your specific situation and required surgeries.

How long is hand surgery recovery?

Depending on your procedure, it may take some time before you notice significant changes in the functionality of your hands. Surgery cannot always restore perfect use of your hands, but the improvements are often dramatic and welcomed by the patients.

How long will my hand surgery results last?

The results of your procedure are designed to provide you with long-lasting benefits. If you begin to feel any symptoms or pain return, please contact your Midsota hand specialist immediately.

“I want to say Thank you to Dr. Heath and the staff at Midsota. Every time I came into the center I was welcomed. Dr. Heath made me feel very comfortable discussing my options for breast reduction. I was kept well informed and felt very safe and secure during the procedure and all of my office visits.”
