While our physicians have extensive medical training, specifically in microsurgery of the hand and arm, we are also conservative when it comes to treatment. We are often able to leverage modern, innovative procedures that actually eliminate the need for surgery. No matter the course of treatment, we apply only the most proven techniques, based on close contact with peer physicians and studying the newest procedures. Our doctors combine experience with an eagerness to learn and a patient-centered approach that emphasizes appropriate, individualized treatment that leads to faster results and better outcomes.
For patients who have lost their thumb, we are able to perform a toe-to-thumb transplant, a complex procedure that involves using the patient’s big toe and attaching it to their hand. Our surgeons are trained to modify the thumb so that it is aesthetically pleasing. This is a life changing procedure for patients, restoring invaluable functions that were impossible before surgery.
Revision surgeries account for 50 percent of the surgeries we complete. Patients may seek revision surgery for a number of reasons, including the need to replace a failed implant or to enhance results from a previous surgery. We understand the complexity of treating such cases and welcome the opportunity to be a part of the solution.
Many of the procedures we offer can be done under light sedation and with a very small incision. These techniques can commonly be applied to wrist fractures, nerve surgery, arthritis surgery and more. By using minimally invasive techniques, we often see less pain and a faster recovery for the patient.
Microsurgery requires an immense amount of skill and training, as surgeons must use specialized operating microscopes and precision instruments to perform surgery on small structures, such as blood vessels and nerves. We currently have five surgeons on staff who specialize in this type of complex surgery and are nationally recognized for their microsurgery procedures.
We’re the only group of specially trained hand surgeons in Central Ohio who provide on-call emergency care, 365 days a year.
Our on-site surgery and therapy centers allow us to provide patients with comprehensive, advanced treatment in one convenient location.
While we strive to keep your primary care physician informed of the care you receive, we are happy to see you without a referral.
