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.
