Dr. Milan Stajić is an expert in treating a wide array of conditions related to hand injuries and deformities, offering the latest treatment options to his patients.

Professional philosophy and approach to patient care:

“Hand injuries account for a significant portion of all the injuries we see, making up about 25% of the total. The good news is that the majority of these are minor, and with timely and appropriate treatment, they usually don’t lead to long-lasting issues. Nonetheless, delaying treatment or receiving inadequate care can lead to severe complications, a long and uncertain recovery process, and potentially permanent damage. It’s crucial to realize that ‘a small injury to a small bone can create a big problem.’ This is particularly true for bone injuries, but soft tissue injuries, including damage to ligaments, tendons, and nerves, are just as significant, if not more so.

It’s worrying that many people only recognize the importance of these issues after experiencing an injury themselves. By then, delaying diagnosis and treatment can mean the loss of valuable time. A common mistake is to avoid seeking expert advice, often influenced by advice like ‘it’s better not to do anything, lest it gets worse.’ Hand surgery is a highly specialized and constantly advancing field, meaning there’s hardly any condition that can’t be significantly improved or alleviated. Even issues that have been present for years can be addressed, though seeking medical advice immediately after an injury or at the first sign of symptoms is always advisable.

If you notice any deformities, experience reduced mobility or numbness in your fingers, or have injuries affecting your hand’s function, please reach out. In most cases, we can help you regain full functionality and minimize any lasting effects.”
