Microvascular Surgery

By General Info

Microvascular Surgery Overview

Microvascular surgery is performed on very small blood vessels using a specialized, high powered microscope. It is used to repair or reattach severed fingers, hands, or other body parts. This surgery repairs tiny blood vessels and restores circulation back into the affected tissue before it begins to decompose. 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.

Microvascular surgery is an option for those with amputations or dupuytren's disease.

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.
