Hand Injury Surgery in Sydney with Dr Kernohan
- Injured hand?
- Deep hand cuts or gash?
- Hand or wrist pain?
Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Michael Kernohan performs surgery to restore the function and appearance of your hand after an accident or traumatic injury. Hand trauma surgery can be considered after a nerve injury, like sharp cuts by glass, a penetrating wound or stabbing, breaking of major nerves from overstretching or nerve compression due to sitting in cramped postures.
Hand surgery for traumatic injuries is an extremely delicate procedure, and as so should be performed by a specialist. For this individualised surgery, precision and care must be given to the tissues which allow the hand to function.
