Orthoplastic Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic Specialists of New York offers expert care in the reconstruction of limbs and extremities that have been severely damaged due to various forms of trauma. Orthoplastic surgery combines the skills of plastic and orthopedic surgery to treat injuries that may render certain parts of the body unable to function, cannot heal on their own, and severely impact a patient’s physical appearance.

Reconstructive Surgery

Limbs in which bones have been broken and a significant amount of skin, fat, muscle, and other tissue has been lost can no longer function normally and are susceptible to infection. Our orthoplastic surgery specialists can restore both the functionality and cosmetic appearance of these limbs using a combination of spare tissue and prosthetic parts. This approach partially repairs the wound and promotes further healing in the affected area.


A traumatic injury can cause arteries, veins, and nerves to become damaged or disconnected. To restore the proper function of damaged limbs and extremities, these additional vessels and pathways must be sutured together using tissue from other parts of the body. Microsurgery is often performed as part of the reconstructive surgical process to restore blood flow and sensation to injured limbs.
