Offering Help and Hope to Patients with Injuries and Deformities
The Center for Microsurgery at University Hospitals Department of Plastic Surgery in Cleveland, Ohio offers help and hope to patients who have experienced severe injuries, burns, cancer or deformities.
Advanced Surgical Technology
Microsurgery is an advanced procedure that transfers and precisely reconnects blood vessels under a microscope, while keeping the original blood supply intact. This sophisticated and complex procedure is vital to restoring function to the affected areas.
Our experts use the most innovative surgical technology to perform microsurgical procedures. After a personal consultation and medical examination, our team determines the best treatment possible for each patient.
Our plastic surgery team offers leading-edge microsurgery flap procedures, which involve transporting healthy, live tissue from one site on the body to another. The use of flaps has dramatically improved our surgeons’ ability to perform reconstructive surgery with improved outcomes for patients. Procedures include:
- Flap surgery
- Bone/soft tissue flap surgery
- Musculocutaneous (skin and muscle) flap surgery
- Facial reanimation (restoring muscles of expression)
Highly Skilled in Repairing and Transforming the Body
Patients with traumatic injuries or more extensive deformities usually need advanced surgical treatment due to the severity of the condition. Our highly skilled team of plastic surgeons at the Center for Microsurgery has specialized knowledge in repairing and transforming severely affected areas of the body.
Microsurgery allows our skilled surgeons to repair and transform these more serious injuries by reattaching nerves or in more extensive traumatic cases, successfully reattach severed injuries.
