At Hand to Shoulder Associates (HAS), we recognize the critical role that a healthy vascular system plays in maintaining proper circulation and overall hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder function. Vascular reconstruction is a specialized field of surgery that focuses on restoring blood flow to the upper extremities and treating vascular conditions that may impact the health of these critical structures.
Candidates for vascular reconstruction surgery
Candidates for vascular reconstruction at HSA are individuals who experience vascular conditions affecting their upper extremities, such as those previously described.
Patients with the following symptoms may be candidates for vascular reconstruction:
- Persistent pain
- Coldness in their hands, wrists, elbows, or shoulders
Additionally, individuals with a history of traumatic injuries, nerve compression, or those requiring limb salvage procedures may also benefit from our expertise in microvascular surgery.
