Hand & wrist

Hand & wrist surgery in Switzerland - Ticino.

The hand is a fascinating organ with essential functions. Phoning, writing – without full functionality of the hands activities of this kind are almost impossible. Functional disorders can be successfully treated with individual therapies and state-of-the-art surgical techniques.

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

    Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by compression of the nerves in the wrist. Surgery may be necessary in addition to conservative treatment in the case of persistent loss of function.

  • Dupuytren’s contracture

    Dupuytren’s contracture is a connective tissue disorder of the hand, which leads to it becoming increasingly difficult to fully extend one or more fingers. If finger extension is impaired by more than 30 degrees, surgery is the recommended treatment.

  • Cubital tunnel syndrome

    La compressione del nervo ulnare al gomito è il risultato di una aumentata pressione su tale nervo nel suo passaggio dal braccio all’avambraccio. Il trattamento è di solito non invasivo ma in alcuni casi l’intervento chirurgico può essere necessario per ridurre il dolore.

  • Tendinite di de quervain

    De Quervain’s tenosynovitis is an inflammation of the extensor tendons of the thumb (extensor pollicis brevis and abductor pollicis longus) under the sheath on the internal (radial) of the wrist. It may be very painful and limiting with symptoms irradiated to the elbow and the hand.

  • Microsurgery of periferic nerve

    Microsurgery is a particular surgical branch where specialized operating microscopes with a magnification up to fourty times and fine instruments are used to repair small nerves of less than 1 mm.

  • 3D replicas of scanned images

    Three-dimensional surveys gives the opportunity for surgeons to analyse the problem exactly as if the patient was in front of them.
