From making a warm delicious meal to holding your loved ones, optimal hand functionality and appearance are central to our lives. At Plastic Surgery of New York, we expertly carry out hand surgery with your requirements and unique condition in mind.
Hand surgery is often more reconstructive than cosmetic. For tendon surgery, fracture repair, carpal tunnel syndrome, congenital deformities and more, the Plastic Surgery of New York team is here to help.
We have been providing expert medical care for hands for over 20 years. Our board-certified surgeons are the best at what they do, ensuring that no matter the condition, your hand function and aesthetics are restructured in the best way possible.
In our hectic and often laptop-oriented lives, carpal tunnel syndrome has become all too common. For those with office jobs, or who play instruments and video games, you may find that you feel pain, numbness and tingling in the hand and fingers. This may occur because your wrist’s median nerve becomes compressed and the pressure disrupts the nerve’s function. At Plastic Surgery of New York, we can confirm the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as check for other possible nerve problems.
For many patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, strategies such as identifying and treating underlying medical conditions, changing hand-use patterns, and wearing wrist splints may help lessen pressure and ease symptoms.
While these non-surgical approaches may significantly relieve symptoms, some patients require surgery to create more room for the nerve. Visit Plastic Surgery of New York to learn how we can treat your carpal tunnel syndrome and greatly reduce your pain.
If you’ve been injured and have sustained a fracture in your hand or fingers, you are probably experiencing pain, stiffness, and sometimes loss of movement.

Surprisingly common, around one in every 1,000 babies is born with an abnormality in hand or arm development. This could be webbed hands, the presence of extra fingers, or the absence of bones and other structures.
Hand function is highly critical to all children and adults, meaning that the early involvement of a skilled hand surgeon can have a profound impact in correcting these malformations. In some cases surgical treatment is best performed during infancy, while in others it’s preferable to wait until the child is older.
For optimal outcomes in the correction of congenital deformities, it’s important to work with an experienced team of therapists, surgeons, and pediatricians. In many cases, the patient will require multiple procedures and extensive physical therapy. By visiting Plastic Surgery of New York for treatment, you’re guaranteed above-and-beyond care using the most sophisticated techniques available today.
