A hand laceration can lead to nerve damage. Thus, cuts can also lead to shredding of the nerve or impairing the function of the nerve. Damage to the nerve can cause impairment of the nerve's transmission speed and function but here we will mainly deal with the traumatic nerve damage and especially the nerve cuts that need suturing. Sensory nerve laceration will lead to a decrease in the sensation that the nerve provides. The risk associated with nerve damage, beyond the loss of sensation, is the formation of a neuroma. A neuroma is actually a tubercle of nerves that grows from the cut end of the nerve. Practically, the neuroma begins as a marked hypersensitivity located in the area where the nerve is injured but later on can lead to widespread sensitivity and impairment of the entire function of the hand.
Nerve suturing surgery should be done by a qualified surgeon. A microsurgeon is an experienced surgeon who has been trained in specialized microsurgery, a good microsurgeon will be able to treat the delicate tissues of the hand and acheive perfect alignment of the cut or injured nerve. A good microsurgeon will know how to perform the suturing of the nerve with minimal trauma to the nerve tissue while creating the right tension between the two sides of the cut nerve. A cut nerve is an indication for nerve stitching surgery. A cut of the nerve can be caused by a knife, a saw, a penetration of glass near, a cut or broken porcelain, or sometimes just a tool or knife during a house chore. When the place of the incision is close to the nerve passage area in the hand chances of injury are high .
You are welcome to contact the clinic and complete an inquiry regarding the injury to the nerve and if necessary we will coordinate surgery to repair the cut nerve.
Nerve surgery is a complex microsurgical surgery and it is recommended that you consult a specialist in neurosurgery microsurgery to do the surgery.
Thus, neurosurgery is a complex surgery that I gladly perform and using the microsurgical skills I acquired during my training at Sheba Medical Center and the American Clinical Microsurgery and Hand Surgery Centers in the USA.
The clinic staff and myself are waiting for you.
