Hand Surgery

Hand surgery performed in Sydney by Dr Reema Hadi

Hand surgery is usually performed to help patients to regain form and function in their hands.

Carpal tunnel surgery

Carpal tunnel surgery is needed when the median nerve is compressed at the wrist. The surgery is performed to release the ligament when it is too tight causing nerve compression. A nerve conduction study may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis. The surgery is performed at a major accredited hospital, usually as day surgery. Dr Hadi will see you regularly after surgery to ensure you make a smooth recovery.

Dupuytren’s surgery

Dupuytren’s contracture usually affects the ring and little fingers. It can occur on both hands, and may be hereditary. Surgery is performed at a major accredited hospital as day surgery or overnight stay. The Dupuytren’s tissue is excised and the overlying skin may need to be rearranged. Occasionally, a graft is needed. Dr Hadi works with a hand therapist to ensure you make a smooth recovery.

Ganglion surgery

Ganglions are fluid filled pockets which can occur on the wrist or hand. Depending on ganglion position, specially approaches are used to remove the ganglion and reduce the chance of it recurring.
