Types of Hand Surgery | Atlanta Hand Surgeon | Woodstock | RoswellSevere injuries or degenerative diseases related to the hand or upper extremity may sometimes require hand surgery. In some cases, the correction of functional anomalies may have to be accompanied by cosmetic surgery to restore the shape and appearance of the hand. An experienced surgeon will customize the procedure to make it less invasive and achieve consummate results.

Dr. Asaf Yalif is a dedicated surgeon with triple board certifications in hand surgery, plastic surgery and orthopedic surgery. Patients in Atlanta, Roswell, Woodstock, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive state of the art procedures for the hand from Dr. Yalif.


Degenerative Diseases

Tendonitis or tendon damage, arthritis, and nerve damage are some of the common degenerative diseases related to the hand, wrist and upper extremity. Dr. Yalif is a board certified hand surgeon and plastic surgeon with advanced training and experience in addressing degenerative diseases of the hand.

Dr. Yalif will employ his knowledge of the intricate interconnections between the soft tissue and bones of the hand and arm to treat the disease, reduce the risk of long-term damage, and prevent potential loss of normal hand function. He receives patients from Atlanta, Roswell, Woodstock, and nearby areas for hand surgery.


Workplace/Sports Injuries

Hands are one of the common parts to sustain injury at the workplace or during a sports activity. A number of surgical and non-surgical treatments are offered by Dr. Yalif to address workplace and sports related hand injuries. He will repair the injury to restore normal function of the hand, and use his skills as a cosmetic surgeon to provide a natural looking appearance to the repaired hand.

Two of the primary workplace and sports injuries of the hand that Dr. Yalif will treat include repetitive motion or repetitive strain and stress injuries, and fractures and breaks of the hand, arm, wrist, fingers, and thumb.



Traumatic injuries to the hand, arm, and fingers may sometimes require reconstructive surgery. Dr. Yalif will first repair the immediate condition and then treat the long-term consequences of a traumatic hand injury with reconstruction.

Hand reconstruction surgery may be necessary in severely traumatic injuries of the hand, finger and arm, as well as amputations.


Scar Treatment

Severe accidents related to the hands or fingers can have both physical and emotional consequences. Sometimes even after the surgical restoration of the hand or finger function following a traumatic injury, unfavorable scarring may occur.

In some cases, a previous hand surgery may have been performed incorrectly to leave visible scars. Dr. Yalif performs advanced hand reconstruction surgeries with minimal scarring. He will also perform scar reduction surgery to improve hand aesthetics.


Hand Rejuvenation

Significant hand rejuvenation can be achieved with cosmetic hand surgery techniques for patients who are bothered by the unsightly or aging appearance of the hands. Hands can appear wrinkled due to loss of volume and skin laxity, making the bones, veins, and tendons appear more conspicuous.

Dr. Yalif can provide both surgical and non-surgical solutions to restore the youthful appearance of the hands, forearms, and wrists.
