What to expect during and after your hand surgery

What happens during your reconstructive hand surgery all depends on what procedure you require. Dr. Roach likely would begin your operation by administering either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Then he would create an incision. Incisions also vary by procedure, but as an example, Carpal tunnel syndrome surgery would require Dr. Roach to make an incision from the middle of the palm to the wrist. This incision would allow him to reach the constricted tissue that is applying pressure on the median nerve. Then, again depending on the type of hand surgery, he would close the incisions with removable or non-removable sutures.

The swelling caused by your surgery will subside over time. It may take several months for your hand to fully heal.
