What is Revision Surgery?
Sometimes a disorder or injury requires reoperation due to the complexity of the case or reinjury.
Muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves are living structures that can change after the initial procedure. Newer cutting edge techniques may offer unique opportunities for greater recovery.
Repeat reconstruction requires a hand surgeon specialist with special experience and expertise in all of the options, including the newest techniques available to maximize functional recovery.
Every patient is unique and must be treated individually on a case by case basis.
Types of Revision Surgeries
