Hand trauma encompasses a wide range of problems, including amputations, lacerations, nerve injuries and fractures. Because the hand is critical to daily activity and work, restoration of normal function as soon as possible is important to every patient. UCSF surgeons perform a wide range of hand procedures including replantation and microsurgery to give every patient the best possible outcome.

In addition to trauma, other hand conditions may affect function as well - these include congenital abnormalities, sometimes with missing thumb or other fingers, and problems of aging such as rheumatoid arthritis.
