Tendons are the cords that connect your arms muscles to the bones of your hand, allowing for the movement of joints. Despite the precise nature of our hands and the intricacy of all of the parts involved, many people don’t realize that any injury to the hand or forearm that causes damage to a tendon can’t heal properly on its own. These injuries can even lead to crippling complications.
It’s imperative that your plastic surgeon performs tendon repair surgery within one to two weeks of the injury. Delays in the time before repair dramatically increase the treatment needed to fix the injury, changing something relatively simple into a multi-stage tendon reconstruction surgery with the potential for sub-optimal results.
If you value having the full range and motion of your hands, it’s critical that you seek prompt evaluation by a hand specialist to treat tendon injuries. Skilled plastic surgeon Dr. Dipan Das is your ideal choice.
