Surgery

The medical field in which an invasive procedure is carried out in order to treat a medical condition or problem

Hand surgery

The entirety of treatments to the upper limb from the arm to the fingertips including conservative treatment such as cast or splint as well as invasive operations.

Hand surgery gives a response to problems or trauma conditions-fracture, acquired injuries - Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - CTS, congenital defects, infections, degenerative changes - Rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions

Microsurgery

Microscopic surgery. Advanced and accurate surgical technique performed using a microscope in order to transfer tissues based on blood vessels.

Hand microsurgery is used in case there is need to complement or repair human body tissues, for example in the case of amputations in which a connection (parallelization) of tissues such as small blood vessels and nerves  is performed using a surgical instrument fitting their diameter (1 millimeter and less).

Blood flow and sensation returns to the amputated area at the end of the microsurgical process.

Anesthesia

A procedure carried out in order to neutralize the neural system, in order to prevent the feeling of pain involved in a surgical procedure while maintaining the correct function of the vital systems.

Local anesthesia - is given to anesthetize the treated location using an injection, a spray or an ointment.

Regional anesthesia - is given in proximity to nerves in the treated area. It is possible to perform this in three ways: spinal anesthesia, epidural anesthesia and neural anesthesia.

 

X-Ray Radiography

A medical instrument for the diagnosis of conditions or fractions in bones. The X-Rays pass through soft tissues such as skin, blood, muscles and fat. Due to the bone tissue's properties, the X-Rays do not pass through the hard tissue on their way to the photographic plate

CT Imaging – Computerized Tomography

A medical instrument for the diagnosis of conditions or fractions in bones. The X-Rays pass through soft tissues such as skin, blood, muscles and fat. Due to the bone tissue's properties, the X-Rays do not pass through the hard tissue on their way to the photographic plate

MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging

A medical instrument using electro-magnetic resonation in order to more accurately distinguish between tissues. This test is performed when there is a difficulty to diagnose using X-Rays or CT imaging. In order to improve the test's accuracy level it is possible to use contrast material.
