treatment of acute nerve injury

When you cut your hand or finger, nerves and tendons can be injured--"lacerated."  It's often very clear when a tendon is cut becasue you will not beable to bend your finger. When a nerve is cut, however, it may be less clear unless you take note of numbness or diminished feeling at the tip of the finger.

Lacerations of nerve can be effectively repaired using sophisticated microsurgical techniques. This surgery can be performed as an outpatient, and the most innovative technology available today enables "entubulation" techniques where by bioabsorbable tubes are used to allow tension free repair and improved outcome.
