- Anaesthesia is an integral and indispensable part of the surgical procedure
- Once a patient is ready for the surgery, our anaesthesiologist carries out an additional examination and discusses with the patient the method of anaesthesia
- The surgery can be carried out under general, local or mixed anaesthesia.
General anaesthesia: Before the procedure you will be given necessary instructions on drinking, eating and taking medications. You will be provided with precise information of what will happen, what to expect and what we will do to make sure you don’t feel any pain before or after the surgery. We use the most modern anaesthetics, methods and devices. Thanks to our staff, the procedure will be painless and you will be able to go back home on the same day after the procedure.
Local anaesthesia: Involves administration of an anaesthetic with use of a needle, to obtain insensitivity of the nerves in particular areas of the hand. This method can be used as the only one or along with general anaesthesia, which is discussed with patients before the procedure. Local anaesthesia is far safer, and the techniques currently used in HANDPROJECT CLINIC are very popular among patients abroad. They allow for earlier return home and quicker recovery.
Last important issue: If you are afraid of anaesthesia, you can always ask for a detailed explanation of the method that will be used, and make sure the procedure will be painless.

- Preliminary qualification before the surgery
- Rehabilitation before and after the surgery
- Ambulatory physiotherapy
- Please remember that physiotherapy is an integral part of the medical procedure on the way to recovery.
- Our rehabilitation specialists are highly experienced in evaluation of problems and making decisions regarding the therapeutic priorities

- electrotherapy – to alleviate pain and reduce oedema
- ortheses, immobilization, ultrasounds
- specialist hand, wrist and finger immobilization methods
- thermoplastic materials for even a more precise fit
The policy of the project is based on mutual respect expressed by both the patient and the medical specialist:
- Respect your time and our time – if you are not able to come to the appointment or consultation, please let us know in advance
- Please remember that the medical specialist participating in the project are conscientious and meticulous. They require a lot from themselves but also from their patients.
- We expect our patients to respect our work and be determined and cooperative throughout the entire therapeutic process.
- High qualifications of our partners allow us to efficiently evaluate problems and make right decisions regarding the therapeutic priorities.
- Please remember to chronologically order all your medical documents, which will make it easier for us to go through it in shorter time.
- If possible, ask your GP for a short letter with the medical history of your condition.
- Protect the environment and do not print excess of documents. Having all the documents printed out does not speed up the procedure in any way.
