Hand, Trauma and Reconstructive Surgery

The ability of the hand to perform delicate manoeuvres requires a very intricate interplay of bones, ligaments, and tendons. Unfortunately, due to the omnipresence of the hand, the hand and wrist are commonly injured. These injuries can be tedious if not treated correctly and hamper the daily activities of an individual. 

The Hand, Trauma, and Reconstructive Surgery Department at the Centre for Excellence in Bone and Joint or Department of Orthopedics at Meitra Hospital is a dedicated unit for the treatment and surgical management of hand and wrist injuries. Our expert doctors and surgeons aim at restoring the aesthetic and functional value of the hand.
