Replants / Microsurgical Repair


Limb replantation is a complex microsurgical procedure that allows patients to have severed limbs reattached or “replanted” to their body. Most patients need limb replantation within hours of experiencing traumatic injuries.

Depending on the type of injury you have, surgical specialists can replant some severed limbs. Replantation is more common for upper extremities like arms, hands, and fingers. It is less common for lower extremities.


Patient History and Examination

Dr. Jason D. Johnson can make a replant/microsurgical repair diagnosis after a complete physical examination and review of medical history.

Replants / Microsurgical Repair Recovery

Physical therapy and temporary bracing are important to the recovery process. From the beginning, braces are used to protect the newly repaired tendons but allow the patient to move the replanted part. Therapy with limited motion helps keep joints from getting stiff, helps keep muscles mobile, and helps keep scar tissue to a minimum.
