Individuals with partial hand amputations desiring individual finger control of a myoelectric hand might benefit from a groundbreaking surgical procedure called muscle transfer.
In this procedure, existing muscle from the fingers are moved to the back of the hand without damaging the nerves and blood vessels to the muscles. Watch the video below to see how Hanger Clinic Upper Limb Specialist, Brian Monroe partnered with Dr. Glenn Gaston and Dr. Bryan Loeffler to create a prosthesis that helped a patient regain individual finger control after muscle transfer surgery at OrthoCarolina.
