Reconstructive
Microsurgery


 


The Reconstructive Microsurgery is a surgical field where with the use of specialized high-powered microscopes and specific instruments we can  performe complicated procedures on microscopic structures (vessels and nerves). Utilizing the magnification of the microscope (up to fifty times relative to the naked eye), and by using sutures that are thinner than a hair, the Plastic surgeon is able to reconstruct and suture blood vessels and nerves, with a diameter less than 1 millimeter.

So in cases of trauma, removal of skin tumor (benign or malignant), amputation or extensive burns,  with the help of microsurgery we can cover the tissue defects (muscle and skin)  by transfer local or free flaps (muscle, skin or myocutaneous ) from another part of  the patient's body with the blood vessels and the nerves and put them to the affected area
