Our world is safer and healthier than it has ever been. We drink clean water and breathe clean air, conquer illness with antibiotics and save lives with surgery. But the fact remains that even in today’s world, accidents still do happen, and unfortunately, because our hands are literally at the forefront of everything we do, many accidents involve injury to the hands and fingers. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hand injuries result in over one million visits to the emergency room each year. In many cases of course, those injuries are relatively minor: cuts or abrasions requiring cleaning and suturing or sprains and fractured bones requiring immobilization and rest. In other cases, unfortunately, the injury may be extremely traumatic. In these cases, you want to be sure that you have a skilled, talented hand reconstruction surgeon on your team, one with the experience and training to repair the damage and give you the best possible chance of making a full and complete recovery.
Dr. Asaf Yalif, lead surgeon at Y Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Atlanta, Georgia is uniquely qualified to handle traumatic injuries to the hand, fingers, and arm, as well as treat the long-term consequences of these injuries. He is Triple Board Certified in Hand Surgery, Orthopedics, and Plastic Surgery, an extremely comprehensive background which gives him in-depth knowledge of the complex workings of the bones and soft tissues in the hand and a unique perspective on how traumatic injury can compromise both the functionality and appearance of the fingers and hands. Because of this extensive level of training, Dr. Yalif brings a holistic approach to hand reconstruction and treatment of traumatic injury: his goal is not simply to repair injury, but to restore functionality to your hands and freedom of movement to you, and to enable you to return to the life you led before it was interrupted by accident and trauma.
Dr. Yalif and his staff at Y Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery have extensive experience performing hand reconstruction surgery to repair damage caused by a traumatic injury to the fingers, thumb, hand, or arm, as well as to resolve long-term complications of such an injury, including:
A traumatic accident at work, on the road, or at home can have a tremendous physical and emotional impact on you, your family, and your ability to earn a living. Depending on the severity of your injury, no one can promise that your hands and/or fingers will return to exactly the way they were before your accident. But surgical techniques and medical technology have made incredible advances in the treatment of traumatic injury in recent years, and where amputation and a life of disability may have been the only option just a few years ago, emergency medical practitioners and reconstructive surgeons now have the ability to repair even significant levels of damage. When performed by an experienced, caring, and talented surgeon such as Dr. Yalif, advanced hand reconstruction surgery and scar reduction treatments can ameliorate the long-term physical and visible consequences of a traumatic injury, enabling you to return to a normal, active, physical and emotionally healthy lifestyle.
