Hand surgery and rehabilitation centre
The hand surgery and rehabilitation centre treats all degenerative diseases, malformations and trauma involving the hand, wrist and elbow, both upon appointment or in an emergency.
The hand surgery specialists at Paideia International Hospital deal with both diagnosing conditions of the hand, wrist and elbow and with operations involving these body parts. The team consists of orthopaedic and plastic surgeons who have advanced specialisations in hand surgery and microsurgery.
Hand surgery is a complex discipline, hence the need for specialist rehabilitation performed by ahighly specialised and qualified team working in close partnership with the surgical team.
Diseases of the hand, wrist and elbow are treated with state-of-the-art surgical procedures such as arthroscopy, microsurgery and prosthetic surgery. Our surgeons’ approach to diagnosis and treatment follows the most up-to-date international guidelines. The anaesthesia used for these surgeries is local or locoregional, which allows our patients to cooperate with the surgeons during the operations and ensures faster post-operative recovery.
Not all hand disorders require surgery, but all surgical procedures must be followed by a rehabilitation protocol aimed at maintaining and optimising the outcome of the surgery. Paideia International Hospital works with the hand therapists at Centro Mano Roma, who are highly specialised professionals in hand and upper limb rehabilitation.
Main conditions treated:
In addition to rehabilitation treatment, hand therapists make customised braces. The splint is a thermoplastic or neoprene brace designed and produced on the patient’s hand and is immediately ready for use.
Braces are also used for congenital deformities either to improve and stabilise its progression or maintain the post-surgical result.
For neurological pathologies, functional braces are capable of restoring the ability to grip objects and thus improve the patient’s quality of life and encourage the rehabilitation of the neurological deficit.
