Hand & Upper Limb Surgery

HOSMAT Hospitals cater to patients with problems related to hand and wrist like pain/stiffness/inability or difficulty to use the hand for activities of daily living. Sports injuries are very common. In recent years, hand surgery has developed into a distinct field of study. The most useful and economically productive bodily part is the hand. A startling 25 to 30% of accidents occur to the hand (from the fingertip to the elbow). However, India has a dearth of trained, licenced, and knowledgeable hand surgeons. Road traffic accidents, workplace accidents, assaults, and household mishaps are common causes of hand injuries. For the restoration of normal anatomy and function, primary rebuilding of wounded hands within 12 hours is crucial. Any delay in receiving the appropriate care may increase the risk of deformity and functional loss. In addition to treating patients with acute injuries, the Hand & Upper Limb Surgery Department also treats patients who have post-injury complications include contractures, tendon and nerve issues, hand deformities, fractures that don’t heal properly, and fractures that do. The Department of Hand & Upper Limb Surgery provides treatment for the following hand and upper limb problems in addition to treating acute injuries and post-injury sequelae.

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
