It is very helpful in hand surgery where vessels and nerves are very small.
For example , for finger or hand reimplantation , microsurgery is mandatory.
Microsurgery takes an important part of Bordeaux’s plastic surgeons’ training since Professeur baudet was one of the world’s forerunner in the matter.
