Microsurgery is a specialised surgical technique which requires many years of training to attain the necessary expertise. Powerful microscopes and specialist equipment are used, which allow the delicate examination and repair of structures such as arteries and nerves, normally invisible to the naked eye. Services focus on the management and treatment of abnormal structures of the body as a result of a variety of underlying causes, including tumours, disease and trauma. Our Unit also has a reputation for excellence in the treatment and management of non healing wounds.
There is 24 hour medical cover, with specialist on call to assess and perform emergency surgery. The team at the Cyprus Hand and Microsurgery Unit comprises Medical Specialists, Nurse Specialists, Hand Therapists and Physiotherapists, and it is this multidisciplinary team approach which ensures that an optimal tailor-made management package is delivered to every patient.
