Reconstructive Surgery in the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Hand Surgery of the Alfried Krupp Hospital in Essen-Steele, headed by M.D. Jörg Hauser: 

The reconstruction of limb and trunk injuries primarily deals with the closure of soft tissue defects, caused as a result of traumas or tumor masses, including the period of cancer treatment. The various methods are applied upon that. The soft tissue covering is performed by means of using adjacent tissues, skin grafting or in the course of free tissue transplant. The functional muscle transplant is carried out to recover the functions, otherwise, the muscle function is reconstructed to replace the lost function, for example, to treat the drop foot. When there are complex bone injuries or bone infection development (osteomyelitis), there is a necessity to use the combined reconstruction of bone and soft tissues, often on the extensive areas of the body. The combined reconstruction, in its turn, requires the use of the whole range of reconstructions. Moreover, reconstructive surgery includes the recovery of nerve, vessel injuries and sewing of the severe limbs.
