In addition, Fortune Iwuagwu also performs hand microsurgical reconstruction of the hands both for trauma and elective pathologies. Some of the elective hand procedures include hand rejuvenation by fat transfer, dupuytren's disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, ganglion, trigger finger and post hand trauma conditions such as contractures, delayed presentation of tendon division.

Fortune Iwuagwu offers a personal service from consultation to post-treatment care. Consultations are not rushed and time is given to discuss your operation and answer any concerns you may have. Mr Iwuagwu will always give an honest opinion and provides leaflets for further reading. Patients have the option of seeing Mr Iwuagwu twice before a cosmetic procedure and there is no charge for the second consultation. This allows the patient to digest the information from the first consultation and to undertake their own research so that they feel able to make an informed decision about whether to go ahead with the procedure.
