There are many reasons a patient may be looking for hand surgery in Fort Lauderdale. Trauma can impair a hand’s proper function and impact its aesthetic appeal. So can cancer and other diseases, congenital defects, burns, and even prior surgery. The problem may be limited to one portion of one hand, or it could involve massive injury to the fingers and forearm.
Dr. Zoran Potparic is an expert in microsurgery, a field that focuses on procedures of an incredibly small magnitude, sometimes requiring the doctor to make repairs to blood vessels or nerves less than 1 millimeter in diameter. Hand surgery is precision work, but the tiny changes can have enormous results, giving function and visual appeal to sufferers previously unable to fully enjoy the use of such an important part of their body.

A HAND SURGERY EXPERT
Practitioners of microsurgery began making great strides in the 1970s, particularly when it came to hand surgery. Their efforts in re-attaching severed fingers and transplanting another digit for use as a thumb was a medical breakthrough. The technology and reconstructive possibilities have only increased since then. Advances in nerve repair have allowed for the restoration of mobility and sensation, and hand transplants are now a reality.
Dr. Potparic has a fellowship in reconstructive microsurgery and nerve surgery. He performs surgery on patients suffering from carpal tunnel, trigger finger, scars and hand contractures, nerve and tendon injuries, cancers and benign tumors of the hand, and more.
He is also a member of the American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery, the most vital group of plastic surgeons, which, through research and clinical work, constantly investigates new venues in plastic reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Their research, through clinical applications, ultimately contributes to development of all fields of plastic surgery-reconstructive and cosmetic. Some of the most prominent cosmetic surgeons in the United States and the entire world today are the members of this society.
Not every patient requiring reconstructive hand surgery should expect to regain full use of the hand, since every case is different, but Dr. Potparic will discuss what may be possible based on the nature of the injury or defect, the individual’s unique health and medical history, and the desired results. A significant part of Dr. Potparic’s practice is devoted to aesthetic hand surgery.
