What is Spine Surgery?Spinal surgery is the subspecialty that uses surgery to restore the normal function of the spine when things go wrong due to trauma, disease, or other disorders. There are many ways that the spine can begin to hurt or lose the ability to move properly, and surgery is not always necessary. However, when surgery is needed, there?s no one more qualified for the job than a spine surgeon. Spinal surgery can be considered a subspecialty of either orthopedics or neurosurgery. That means that a spine surgeon may take either path to this specific career, training first as either an orthopedist or a neurosurgeon. Orthopedics deals mainly with the structural issues of the back and spine: the bones, muscles, and joints. Neurosurgery deals mainly with issues of the brain, nerves, and spinal cord. So when choosing a spine surgeon, it is sometimes possible that your surgeon?s background will have a bearing on your particular diagnosis. However, in most cases, it doesn?t matter. Either an orthopedist-spine surgeon or a neurosurgeon-spine surgeon can handle the majority of spine surgeries. What is more important is that some spine surgeons specialize in specific areas of the spine, such as lumbar surgery or cervical surgery. In that case, it is important to connect with a surgeon who is experienced with your particular need. Some of the surgeries performed on the spine include:
- Correction of spinal deformities, such as scoliosis
- Spinal fusion
- Minimally invasive spine surgery, including decompression surgeries such as discectomy and laminectomy
- Balloon kyphoplasty, a procedure done to repair compression fractures in vertebrae

What is Hand Surgery?Our hands are not only incredibly useful and important for our daily functioning, but they are complex and delicate parts of our body. It can take a specialist to keep the hands functioning at their best. Hand surgeons are general, plastic, or orthopedic surgeons who have received additional training specifically in the care of hands, wrists and forearms. Surgery is not the only care that a hand surgeon provides. Hand surgeons might prescribe medications, physical therapy, or splints and braces as well as surgery, depending on the condition. They care for a wide variety of issues affecting the hand or forearm, which may include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Fingers that cannot be straightened, such as with Dupuytren’s contracture
- Deformities of the fingers, such as syndactyly (webbed or fused fingers) or polydactyly (extra fingers)
- Wrist or hand pain
- Serious injuries of the hand or wrist, including burns and sports injuries
- Reattachment of severed fingers or creation of prosthetics

What is Neurosurgery?Neurosurgery is the highly skilled specialty devoted to the surgical treatment of issues affecting the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. It is similar to the specialty of neurology, which also treats disorders of the nervous system. Even though there is some overlap, neurosurgery focuses on the surgical treatment of nervous system disorders. However, not every neurosurgery job means surgery -- neurosurgeons may also provide a diagnosis, interpret imaging and test results, or provide non-surgical treatment, depending on the nature of the illness. Neurosurgeons treat nervous system disorders such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Brain or spine tumors
- Blood clots in the brain
- Aneurysms or stroke
- Spinal cord injuries
- Carpal or cubital tunnel syndromes
- Repair of severed nerves
- Infections of the brain or spinal fluid
What is Plastic Surgery?When you hear the words ?plastic surgeon,? you might call to mind actresses with outlandish body proportions or aging stars with surreal facial features. Plastic surgery to alter appearance is referred to as ?aesthetic? or ?cosmetic? surgery. As is the case with celebrities, cosmetic surgery is often performed to change the appearance of a feature that a patient has always disliked, or to prevent changes from happening due to aging. However, cosmetic surgery can also restore appearance after an injury or illness -- when a medical condition leaves a physical mark that makes a patient look different, it can be very upsetting. Cosmetic plastic surgery gives patients more control over how they look. But plastic surgery is about much more than changing someone's appearance. Plastic surgery is also about changing the form and function of the body, and often that means restoring what has been lost to injury or illness. A body part can lose its ability to function (meaning, for example, to move, grip, protect underlying tissues, or feel sensation) to many causes. Some common ones are burns, infections, injuries (e.g. from car accidents), illnesses (such as cancer), problems present from birth (such as cleft palate), or even scar tissue from previous surgeries. When plastic surgery is used to repair a damaged part, it is called ?reconstructive surgery.? Reconstructive procedures restore the abilities of the patient so that they can use their body in as normal and healthy a way as possible. Plastic surgeons are experts at safely moving tissue from one part of the body to another, using microsurgery techniques to reconnect the tiny blood vessels and nerves. They use these skills not only to improve appearance (cosmetic surgery), but also to repair damaged body parts (reconstructive surgery).
What is Microsurgery?Microsurgery is surgery performed under a microscope on the very smallest structures of the body. Miniature instruments are used to surgically repair tiny blood vessels and nerves that can be smaller than 1 millimeter in diameter. Microsurgery is important because it allows the transfer of living tissue from one place in the body to another. After a piece of skin or muscle is moved, nerves can be reconnected, and a blood supply can be restored. Because microsurgery is so useful in tissue transfers, it is most often used for plastic and reconstructive surgery, including reattaching amputated limbs or placing grafts of tissue. It may also be used on tiny, delicate parts of the body, such as the eye or inner ear.
