Microsurgery in Tuscaloosa

State-of-the-Art Surgical Techniques Close to Home

At DCH Health System, we are your partners for a healthier tomorrow. We offer a variety of state-of-the-art surgical services, including microsurgery, a technique combining magnification from a microscope and precision tools for the complex repair of human tissue. Patients who need microsurgery often have suffered tissue trauma, cancer, or a congenital condition. Successful microsurgery aims to transplant tissue from one area of the body to another to heal wounds, restore function, and restore form. This highly advanced surgical technique also assists in more rapid recovery and healing for a wide variety of medical issues, including emergency amputations or breast reconstruction.

The microscope utilized during surgery offers the microsurgeon 2 binocular viewing fields that magnify small structures, such as the blood vessels, up to 50 times. By visualizing these structures in great detail, it allows for precise surgical manipulation so the microsurgeon can skillfully repair nerves, blood vessels, and manage complex soft tissues. The structures microsurgeons work on are often extremely small, and nerves may be less than 1 millimeter in diameter.

Reconstructive microsurgical techniques provide patients a new lease on life, especially after a severe injury that cannot be treated with traditional surgical methods. Advanced computing and robotics offer surgeons more precision and allows them to be less invasive.
