UF Health plastic surgeons offer full range of surgical hand care
Hand surgery is the treatment of acquired and congenital diseases of the hand. Commonly treated conditions include:
- Syndactyly (webbed digits)
- Nerve compressions (carpal tunnel)
- Endoscopic carpal tunnel release
- Dupuytren’s disease
- Skin cancers
- Tumors in the upper and lower extremity
- Wrist surgery
- Wrist arthroscopy
- Management of peripheral nerve injuries
In addition, we offer a unique procedure known as a toe-to-thumb transfer for patients who are missing a thumb. The surgery entails moving tissue from a person’s toe to serve as a functioning thumb.
