Plastic surgeons are highly trained and experienced in treating common hand conditions, including hand injuries. Dr Steve Merten has been treating hand conditions, both elective and hand injuries, for over 15 years, both through his private practice and public hospital.
The most common hand conditions treated by Dr Merten are:
- Injured hands, including injuries to the tendons, nerves, blood vessels, and joints; fractured bones; and burns, cuts, and other injuries to the skin.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Trigger finger, DeQuervains and other tenosynovitis.
- Dupuytrens disease and hand contractures.
- Ganglions and other hand lumps and tumours.
As a hand surgery specialist, Dr. Merten uses the most advanced surgery techniques to improve both function and appearance of your hands.
In most cases, surgery can restore a significant degree of function for most hand conditions. However, recovery may take months, we work closely with hand therapists to maximise your recovery and minimise your time off normal activities.
