Plastic Surgeons Are Hand Surgeons
Many people do not know that plastic surgeons are also hand surgeons. In addition to aesthetic plastic surgery procedures, such as breast augmentations, tummy tucks, and facelifts, plastic surgeons are also well trained to work on patients with hand traumas, including work-related injuries and repairing tendons, nerves, and fractures. Plastic surgeons are also well qualified to perform elective hand surgeries for conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, ganglions, and Dupuytren’s contracture.
In addition to aesthetic plastic surgery, Dr. Benjamin Schlechter also specializes in hand surgery. In fact, Dr. Schlechter was recently featured in the article in the Reading Eagle regarding his hand surgery specialty. We encourage you to read the full article below.
