These are common hand diseases that often generates limitation or loss of function, pain and aesthetic deficiency. Hand surgery is a complex field that combines various techniques of general surgery, microsurgery, vascular and orthopedic surgery. In Romania it is mainly practiced by plastic surgeons, wich are addressing both hand and forearm pathology (and if necessary collaborating with physicians of other specialties). The hand is of major social and functional importance in everyday life and at work. Therefore the hand diseases can be very debilitating. They should be promptly and properly treated in order to obtain an optimal result. Hand surgery is delicate and painstaking, requiring precision and advanced theoretical and practical knowledges. Because of the small size and the complexity of existing structures, practicing this specialty requires combining many skills (accuracy, experience, clinical thinking, patience) that is acquired after many years of preparation.
