Congenital hand malformations, such as symbrachydactyly or syndactyly, and hand disabilities caused by disease or accident have a huge impact on a child’s life, affecting both their ability to use their hands functionally and their mental health. From November 25 to December 2, 2018, world-leading French hand surgeon Dr Stéphane Guero will examine and treat patients with congenital hand malformations or trauma-related deformities at FV Hospital’s Hand Surgery Department, Bone & Joint Centre.
Dr Guero is one of the founders of the Hand Surgery Institute of France and a member of the European Association of Clinical Anatomy. With over 20 years of experience in hand surgery, especially in paediatric patients, Dr Guero has earned a reputation as the “hand magician”, specialising in performing complicated surgeries such as:
- Finger transformation
- Hand function restoration
- Corrections of the brachial plexus
- Syndactyly corrections
- Arm nerve corrections
- Congenital hand malformation correction
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Cosmetic improvement of skin lesions
- Bone grafting for congenital polydactyly.
Dr Guero is skilled at treating patients with trauma-related hand deformities and paediatric patients with congenital hand malformations so that they can live a better, fuller life.
In cases of complicated deformities, Dr Guero uses the Sonopet ultrasonic aspirator, which allows fine dissection while ultimately minimising bleeding. This technology enables him to remove diseased tissue without damaging other important components, such as the blood vessels and nerves; it also helps to reduce blood loss and possible post-surgical complications, ensuring that patients benefit from a shorter recovery time.
FV Hospital offers excellent post-operative care delivered by dedicated, friendly doctors and nurses, and will assist hand rehabilitation patients through physiotherapy to help them to recover as quickly as possible.
