Tendon repair or tendon transfer surgery is a type of hand surgery that is performed to restore lost hand function. During a tendon transfer, a functioning tendon is taken from its original position to another site to restore function in the hand.
A tendon transfer is usually performed when there is damage to the tendons in the hand that can no longer be repaired by other means. This damage can be caused by injury, disease, or birth defects. Tendon transfer surgery can also be used to treat deformities of the hand and fingers.
