These can include trigger finger, mallet finger, fractures, partial amputations, lacerated tendons, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many others through either nonoperative or operative management, or both, in an effort to restore maximal function.
Lower extremity reconstruction involves a variety of procedures for a variety of needs. This type of reconstruction is frequently used for issues such as chronic nonhealing wounds and traumatic injuries. Although not a comprehensive list, some of the treatments involved may include local flaps, free flap reconstruction, skin grafts, or amputation when necessitated.
Additionally, Drs. Mehan and Johnson are known for using Integra™, an advanced wound care product designed to provide coverage of exposed bone, tendon, cartilage, and joints, and encourage healing of open wounds. Again, optimizing functionality is the main goal of this reconstruction with a secondary goal being cosmesis.
Although every type of reconstruction hopes to achieve excellent aesthetic results along with the restoration of function, facial reconstruction especially has the highest standard when it comes to achieving exceptional cosmetic outcomes. Types of injuries commonly seen here range from soft tissue injuries such as lacerations to facial fractures including the ZMC, mandible, orbital, nasal, and septal bones.
