Hand surgery deals with conditions affecting the functions of the wrist and fingers. This surgery is used to treat cases of carpal tunnels, fractures or any other diseases, injuries, sequelae or malformations affecting the vessels, tendons, ligaments and joints of the hand. The proximity of the anatomical structures and the complex functional anatomy of the upper limbs require specific skills in diagnosis, therapy and rehabilitation.
