Operations



At Kent Hand Surgery we treat finger, hand, wrist and elbows. Many of our common operations are listed below.

As well as treating chronic conditions we also have a specilised service for treating soft tissue and bone injuries (fractures)

'Wide Awake' Surgery
using local anaesthetic blocks

  • We can perform many of our operations under local anaesthetic

  •  This is given by our skilled anaesthetists and avoids the need to be put to sleep under a general anaesthetic
  • It is usually performed with an injection in the armpit, lower arm or hand. This numbs the surgical area or the whole arm
 
  • Wide awake surgery is very safe and is excellent for post operative pain relief and often reduces the requirements for tablet pain killers.
