Our hands serve many purposes. They help us to get dressed in the morning, prepare breakfast, write our emails, call our loved ones, work for us, create works of art, help us in sport and in a thousand other activities. In order to carry out all these tasks, our hands need the sense of touch and all the movement of their joints, the tension of the tendons, the muscular contraction.

Any kind of problem makes using our hands difficult or painful, so hand surgeons are specifically trained to pay particular attention to all the different types of tissue to restore all functions, with or without surgery.

Hand surgery is the field of medicine that deals with the problems of the hand, wrist and forearm, but many surgeons are also experts in the diagnosis and care of the shoulders and elbows. Often they are orthopaedic surgeons, plastic surgeons or specialists in general surgery who have additional training in hand surgery.
