Hand Surgery Q & A

by Tarik M. Husain, MD, FACS

What is hand surgery?

The field of hand surgery encompasses a wide range of procedures to correct orthopedic and aesthetic issues that occur anywhere between your fingertips and shoulder.

Dr. Husain stands among an elite class of a small number of plastic surgeons holding quadruple board certifications, including:

  • Hand and upper extremity surgery
  • Plastic and aesthetic surgery
  • Orthopedic surgery and sports medicine
  • Sports medicine

This comprehensive skill set allows Dr. Husain to provide excellent care to Miami Beach patients looking for hand, elbow, or shoulder surgery.

Why would I need hand surgery?

It’s easy to forget how much you rely on your hands and arms until a painful or debilitating condition limits your everyday tasks. If you have pain anywhere from your shoulder to your fingertips, Dr. Husain can help.

As a board-certified hand, orthopedic, and plastic surgeon, he specializes in the treatment of all types of upper extremity issues, including:

  • Arthritis of the hand, wrist, elbow, or shoulder
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome
  • Hand, finger, and wrist fractures
  • Hand and finger infections
  • Trigger finger
  • Dupuytren’s contracture
  • Wrist arthroscopy
  • Forearm fractures
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sports injuries such as tennis elbow
  • De Quervain’s tenosynovitis (inflammation in your wrist and thumb)
  • Growths or lumps such as ganglion cysts

Dr. Husain has extensive experience restoring function and aesthetic appeal to your hands and arms so you can keep doing the things you love most.

What should I expect from a hand surgery procedure?

First, Dr. Husain thoroughly examines your hand, wrist, or arm and reviews your medical history. Then, he recommends the most effective procedure to improve your particular condition.

For your convenience, Dr. Husain schedules surgical procedures at several hospitals in the Miami Beach area. You should plan to have someone drive you home after surgery as the anesthesia will make you sleepy.

The amount of time your hand, wrist, or elbow surgery takes depends on the procedure you require and the complexity of your condition. The amount of recovery time you need also depends on these factors. Recovery could take anywhere from one week to several months.

After your surgery, schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Husain within 5-7 days so he can evaluate your recovery progress.
