Hand Surgery includes surgical and non-surgical treatment of conditions and injuries in the hand and the upper extremity. Hand Surgery is recognized as a clinical speciality in its own right in Sweden and units are located at the university hospitals. Our research covers a spectrum of conditions and injuries, extending from basic science up to clinical research with health science and health economic aspects. It has a strong focus on various nerve conditions, such as nerve compression in diabetes, and nerve injuries, and how to achieve best possible function after surgical procedures, where timing of surgery is crucial. The researchers are exploring both nerve injuries and conditions with their connection to the brain’s interpreting and controlling functions. The research is performed in multi-professional teams with national and international networks. The research uses high-tech techniques, such us synchrotron imaging and masspectrometry, and utilizes national quality registers.
