When injury or disease involves nerves, vessels, tendons and the skin microvascular surgery could be the best option to repair them. A microvascular surgeon is trained in using the microscope to either repair or reconstruct these structures. Many times, sutures that are difficult to see with the naked eye are used under the high powered microscope to repair lacerations of vessels and nerves. Some disorders such as Dupuytren’s disease form contractures with disease tissue surrounding nerves and vessels that require surgical excision with the utmost of precision using a high powered operating microscope. As a trained microvascular surgeon, Dr. Steinberg has treated many patients in this sub-specialty.
