The hand is one of the most complex parts of the human body. Diseases or damage therefore present a special surgical challenge. Our specialists are proficient in treating all injuries or acute and chronic diseases of the hand, wrist and forearm.

We guarantee continuous personal medical care. Either on an outpatient basis in our consultation hours at MHAND, or as an inpatient at the neighboring Helios Klinikum München West. Here we have the entire infrastructure with complete hand surgery equipment at our disposal.

If any of your questions remain unanswered after reading our web pages, we will be happy to provide you with further information by telephone, email or you can simply make an appointment for a consultation.

We offer the full range of hand surgery services. We treat injuries and all acute, chronic and acquired conditions of the hand, wrist and forearm, surgically and conservatively, on an outpatient and inpatient basis. We also offer various methods of hand rejuvenation and hand beautification.

Before any treatment, you will go through a preparatory diagnostic process, and we will also provide you with a detailed consultation and discuss the pros and cons of conservative or surgical treatment together with you. Our principle is to carry out the respective treatment as little as possible but as comprehensively as necessary and, if necessary, to work closely with your physiotherapist, occupational therapist, pain therapist or referring physician.

Procedures can be performed under local, sedation or general anesthesia.

Nerve tumors – neuromas and neurinomas
Nerve tumors are usually benign, grow slowly and are therefore usually discovered late, when the first pain occurs.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome refers to chronic compression of the metacarpal nerve. The result: pain in the index finger, middle finger and thumb.
Ulnar groove syndrome (SNUS/SUS)
Ulnar groove syndrome is a narrowing of the ulnar nerve, a nerve canal that runs along the inside of the elbow.
Nerve injuries
A nerve injury to the finger or hand usually results from an open injury and usually requires surgical treatment.
Tendon rupture
A torn tendon in the finger usually occurs as a result of rapid overuse or an accident and can be treated conservatively in most cases.
Tendonitis, although very painful, is usually harmless and can be treated very well - without surgery.
Ligament injuries and sprains
Injuries to the carpal ligaments often result from an accident and are often mistakenly dismissed as a "simple sprain."
Tendon stenosis
Typical for a tendon constriction is pain especially at the wrist below the thumb.
Bone fractures (fractures)
The most common hand fractures include metacarpal fracture, scaphoid fracture, or radius fracture.
Pseudarthrosis is the term used to describe a bone fracture that does not grow back together, with bone fragments forming a type of "false joint."
An exostosis describes a new formation of bone substance that becomes visible externally and can occur on various bones.
Bone necrosis
Kienböck's disease is a circulatory disorder of the bone tissue that causes slow death of the lunate bone.
Bone tumors
A bone tumor is a (usually benign) growth of a bone. If the tumor is malignant, it must be surgically removed.
Malpositions and malformations
Congenital malformations of the hand and forearm are usually caused by a change in the genetic material, but also by toxic influences.
Dupuytren’s disease
Dupuytren's disease is a connective tissue disease of the palm that limits the movement of the finger joints.
Blood circulation problems
Stitches, cuts, stretches or bruises can injure the blood vessels of the hand and cut off blood flow.
Rheumatoid arthritis
Typical symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis - the most common form of autoimmune disease - are pain and morning stiffness of the finger joints.
Infections of the hand often arise from small wounds and inevitably require treatment - in rare cases, surgery becomes necessary.
Soft tissue injuries and scar contracture
If soft tissue of the hand is damaged by crush injuries or burns, surgery is often necessary.
Hand tumors and skin lesions
Tumors can also grow uncontrollably in the hand, making them dangerous to the body. If this is the case, the tumor must be surgically removed.
Ganglia (ganglions)
A ganglion, colloquially known as a ganglion overbone, is the most common benign soft tissue tumor of the hand and is noticeable as a swelling under the skin.
Joint capsulitis
In joint capsulitis, the joint lining is inflamed. It occurs either acutely or runs chronically.
Rheumatism and gout
Gout is a metabolic disease in which joints can become severely inflamed when too much uric acid is deposited in these parts of the body.
Cartilage damage
Cartilage damage is often caused by a previous injury, such as a fracture or torn ligament between the carpal bones.
Finger and wrist arthrosis
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease in which the cartilage layer is chronically damaged and gradually destroyed by wear and tear.
