While the hands can be quite rugged, they are also a critical and vulnerable part of the anatomy. Their function can be impaired by nerve damage or nerve injury, which leads to difficulty performing everyday activities without pain and discomfort—or at all. With Dr. Montilla's extensive background in education and experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery, he performs arguably the best hand surgery Boston has to offer.
Conditions impacting hand function can include:
- Brachial Plexus: A nerve bundle at the shoulder, this condition may be corrected by peripheral nerve surgery to restore hand function.
- Cubital Tunnel Syndrome: This condition is characterized by restricted elbow movement, along with numbness, atrophied hand muscles, and other conditions that can be treated with hand microsurgery.
- De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis: As a result of this condition, nerve damage causes restriction in wrist motion, often requiring surgical intervention.
- Cosmetic hand issues: It’s an unfortunate fact that the hands betray the signs of aging before other parts of the body. In such a case, it may be necessary to undergo cosmetic hand treatment to restore their useful appearance.
