Hand and Microsurgery Program
The Yale Hand and Microsurgery Program offers the latest techniques and specialized expertise in the re–plantation of amputated digits or extremities. Reconstructive aspects of ablative surgery about the head and neck, extremities and problem wounds in the thorax, abdomen and perineum are also offered. Hand surgery and occupational disorders are coordinated through a multidisciplinary effort directed not only towards traumatic and degenerative disorders of the upper extremities, but also the understanding and treatment of occupation–related disorders. In this program, problems developed in the workplace, including pain and injury related to repetitive tasks are comprehensively addressed.
