What is the recovery time for a hand surgery?

The recovery time can differ greatly from one patient to another, based on your condition and how you feel after your surgery.

This period also depends on the type of surgery you're having and the severity of your condition. For example, if you tendons are affected and need reconstruction, it can take up to 12 weeks for your hand to return to its full strength and 6 months to regain the full movement range.
