  • Patient Evaluation : The surgeon conducts a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical history, hand condition, and any previous surgeries.

  • Imaging : X-rays, CT scans, or other diagnostic imaging studies are conducted to evaluate the hand's anatomy, the nature of the injury or condition, and the precise location for surgery.

  • Medical Clearance: If the patient has underlying medical conditions, they may need to obtain medical clearance from their primary care physician or specialists to ensure they are suitable for surgery.

  • Surgical Planning :The surgeon reviews the imaging results to plan the procedure, including the selection of the appropriate plate size, length, and the placement of the "Compact Hand Plates - 2.0 mm Mini H" based on the patient's unique anatomy and the specific hand issue.

  • Informed Consent : The surgeon thoroughly discusses the surgical procedure, potential risks, benefits, and expected outcomes with the patient. Informed consent is obtained to ensure the patient's understanding and agreement to proceed.

  • Anesthesia Evaluation : An anesthesia consultation may be conducted to determine the most suitable anesthesia approach (local, regional, or general anesthesia) based on the patient's medical history and the surgical complexity.
  • Patient Positioning : The patient is positioned on the operating table with the affected hand accessible and exposed within a sterile field.

  • Incision : A carefully planned incision is made over the area of the hand requiring surgery. The incision's length and location depend on the specific condition and surgical approach.

  • Fracture Reduction or Reconstruction : The surgeon manipulates and reduces fractures or performs reconstructive procedures as needed, ensuring proper alignment.

  • Plate Placement : The "Compact Hand Plates - 2.0 mm Mini H" are positioned over the fracture or surgical site. The surgeon selects the appropriate holes for screw placement to achieve stable fixation and alignment.

  • Screw Fixation : Orthopedic screws, matching the plate's dimensions (2.0mm), are inserted through the plate's Mini H design and into the bone to secure the plate in place.

  • Wound Closure : The incision is meticulously closed using sutures or staples, ensuring a clean and infection-free wound closure.
  • Recovery Room : The patient is monitored in the recovery room to ensure stable vital signs and the absence of immediate post-operative complications.

  • Pain Management : Pain management protocols are initiated as needed to keep the patient comfortable.

  • Physical Therapy : Depending on the surgeon's recommendations, physical therapy and rehabilitation exercises may be initiated to promote hand mobility, strength, and function.

  • Follow-Up Appointments : The patient is scheduled for follow-up appointments with the surgeon to monitor the healing process, remove sutures or staples, and assess overall recovery.

  • X-ray Monitoring : Regular X-rays are taken to evaluate bone healing, the position of the implant, and the progress of hand recovery.
