WHAT IS HAND SURGERY?

Hands are a vital part of our connection to the world and others. They are an indispensable source of communication and information, as well as the quintessential tool to transform our reality. They transmit feelings, ideas and sensations. They identify us. They place us in the world. The complexity of all the functions that they must develop is so extensive that their functionality requires a sophisticated system of muscles, bones, nerves, tendons, joints, blood vessels and tendons. From the elbow to the tip of each finger, each time we perform a movement or action that involves the hands, an amazing chain of biomechanical tasks is set in motion that has allowed us to get to where we are._cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

Due to its enormous importance and the complexity that its care and treatment requires, hand surgery requires specialists trained in the best and most advanced techniques. In Asunción Klinika we have the Dr. Javier Corredordoctor  attached to trauma service, who have been dedicated to this area for more than a decade, offering their patients the peace of mind of knowing that their hands are in the best hands.
