Microsurgery is a surgical discipline that combines magnification with advanced diploscopes, specialized precision tools and various operating techniques. Two of the main purposes of microsurgery are to transplant tissue from one part of the body to another and to reattach parts. These techniques are primarily used to anastomose small blood vessels and to coapt nerves. Microsurgery helps to heal wounds, restore function after trauma, and restore form after cancer. It can assist in the recovery and healing of a wide array of medical issues, from emergency amputations to reconstoration of the human breast.
