Bobby Chhabra teaches medical students at the University of Virginia School of Medicine as a professor of orthopaedic surgery and a professor of plastic surgery, and he was recently appointed the chair of orthopaedics at the school. Since 2002, Bobby Chhabra has practiced as an orthopaedic hand surgeon at the university, serving as a team physician for the Department of Athletics. Microvascular hand surgery is one of his areas of expertise.
Microvascular hand surgery is an advanced technique used to repair cases of hand trauma, congenital problems, or other damage. It is a very complex procedure, requiring reconstruction of arteries and veins. In recent years, advances in technology have enabled surgeons to use minimally invasive surgical procedures to repair nerve damage with the aid of a powerful operating microscope. Using this sophisticated equipment, surgeons can avoid injury to healthy structures while reconnecting damaged nerves or repairing damaged blood vessels.
