Our thirty years of experience and strong presence in top-level Greek microsurgery practices have led to the establishment of the Metropolitan Hospital Upper Limb Surgery and Reconstructive Microsurgery Team.
This team aims to provide the most comprehensive and timely treatment of upper limb and peripheral nerve injuries and conditions, using traditional and innovative surgical techniques, while at the same time showing kindness and compassion towards patients and working closely with other health professionals.
The Department accepts emergencies 24/7, all year round.
Detection and repair of very small anatomical structures of the body
The term "microsurgery" refers to the surgical technique that uses a surgical microscope.
This technique permits the detection and repair of very small anatomical structures of the body, such as anastomosis of very small vessels and nerves (typically around 1mm in diameter), transfer of tissue from one part of the body to another, and replantation of amputated limb parts.
Upper limb surgery deals with the surgical and conservative treatment of all hand and upper limb conditions. These conditions prevent the patient from performing various operations necessary for daily activities.
The Metropolitan Hospital Microsurgery Department specializes in the following conditions:
- Brachial plexus surgery
- Peripheral nerve surgery
- Congenital disorders
- Vascularized tissue transfer
- Skin defect coverage
- Hand surgery (skin, bones, joints, tendons)
- Obstetrical paralysis
