Yale Hand and Microsurgery Program

The Yale Hand and Microsurgery Program has one of the most comprehensive and most respected diagnostic and treatment programs in the nation. Our team members specialize in hand and microsurgery, radiology, orthopedics, rehabilitation, and neurology to provide you with complete care and current surgical techniques. 

Our surgeons are internationally recognized for performing innovative procedures in the replantation of amputated digits or extremities, microvascular reconstruction, and free flap surgical techniques. 

We understand that injury, trauma, or degenerative disease that affects the function of your hand, wrist, and the nervous system of the arm also affects your ability to work, participate in activities that you enjoy, and, in some cases, it affects your ability to perform normal, daily routines. Our goal is to restore your hand and upper extremities to the highest level of function possible. 

We also provide care for the most precious and delicate hands, those of a child. Our multidisciplinary team specializes in treating children born with congenital abnormalities that involve the hands, such as syndactyly, to allow for normal development and function.

Whether you or your child will be receiving treatment, we know you will have a lot of questions. Our expert team members provide detailed answers to make sure you feel comfortable, every step of the way. 

Members of our team strive to apply the most current surgical and treatment technologies and they are at the forefront of research that creates these advancements. Clinical and translational research at the Yale Hand and Microsurgery Center covers a significant range of areas, including surgical techniques of the hand and wrist, brachial plexus reconstruction, peripheral nerve surgery, and free flap tissue transfers.
