Our Research


The Department of Hand and Reconstructive Microsurgery has made significant contribution to the research and development of hand surgery and reconstructive microsurgery, especially in the fields of replantation, free tissue transfers, refinement in the techniques of muscle and tendon transfer, and in the field of hand prosthetics. By consistently advancing research tissue engineering and biomaterials, we hope to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of hand surgery.
