MICROSURGERY


Microsurgery involves the use of microscopes and specialised instrumentation to perform intricate surgery. When operating and in hand surgery, this is particularly helpful when using extremely fine sutures on the complex structures. Microsurgery is especially useful in reconnecting blood vessels and nerves following a trauma such as an amputation or subtotal amputation.

From time to time a transplant of tissue is required for reconstruction of very large or complicated wounds. This is done using a ‘flap’ of tissue from elsewhere in the body joined onto local blood vessels using microsurgery.
