Till recently, hand problems were managed by all surgeons. With the advent of microsurgery and enhanced knowledge of the mechanics of hand function, Hand surgery as a specialty began to evolve. Plastic Surgeons and Orthopaedic Surgeons were attracted to this field. Better results are now obtained when surgeons who are trained in Hand surgery, deal with the problems of the hand. The Hand and Microsurgery Department at HOSMAT Hospital, belongs to this small growing group. It introduced Reconstructive Microsurgery to this region. Your hands need the quality care when they have a problem.
HOSMAT has one of the best physiotherapy centres and hand rehabilitation and occupational therapy units in the country, as also very modern orthotic and prosthetic centre for hand splints and orthotic and artificial hands and limbs.
