Achievements

The Microsearch Foundation of Australia has developed many new techniques over the last 30 years. They include:

  • Single and double hand transplantations
  • The re-joining of severed limbs, hands and fingers which commenced here in Australia in 1970
  • Surgical techniques to repair abnormalities in new-born babies and even premature new-born babies
  • Nerve graft techniques which restore the results of severe trauma where nerves need replacement
  • Development of specialised instruments and operating microscopes required for these delicate techniques
  • Surgical techniques to restore fertility to both men and women
    delivery of training programmes to allow our surgical advances to be performed in other parts of the world

The development of specialised instruments has characterised Microsearch since its beginning.
