Anca Breahna is a cosmetic surgeon who specialises in hand surgery and has a CV in this field that is unsurpassed – she is now available for procedures and consultations in Chester.
There are many fine cosmetic surgeons in Chester and many will offer procedures relating to the hands, however Ms Breahna has specialist knowledge in this area that sets her apart.
She has been awarded the Post Graduate Diploma for Hand Surgery at the BSSH (British Society for Surgery of the Hand) and is on the Specialist register for Plastic Surgery.
In 2016, she was appointed Consultant Plastic Surgeon in 2016 at the world-renowned Pulvertaft Hand Centre and she is one of an elite group of surgeons to hold both British and European Diplomas in Hand Surgery, as well as the BSSH MSc in Hand Surgery.
Ms Breahna also holds many other accreditations and has held prestigious fellowships, she has a further specialism in breast reconstruction surgery.
However, the field of hand specialism is relatively rare and so it can be hugely beneficial to seek a consultation with someone who has dedicated a huge amount of time into studying conditions relating to this part of the body.
Broadly speaking, Ms Breahna can carry out hand surgery and also any surgery for injuries of the hand.
Hand surgery would include the following, though this is not intended as a fully exhaustive list.
Tendon Surgery – this can correct Trigger finger and De Quervain’s Disease; Ms Breahna uses techniques to release the tendon.
Arthritis – arthritis in the hands can be greatly debilitating. A number of treatment options are available and the correct course of action would vary by patient, rest assured that Ms Breahna would have the expertise to choose the very best option.
Ganglion Cysts – these can be removed by draining the fluid, or by cutting out. Again, the best option would be discussed in consultation.
Dupuyterns Disease – there are a number of treatment options available, these include Xiapex injections, needle Aponeurotomy or open fasciectomy. These treatments all aim to straighten the fingers rather than cure the disease itself.
Nerve Surgery – carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated with surgery whereby an incision is made that release the pressure on the nerve. Cubital tunnel release is achieved by an incision on the inside of the elbow and then deeper within, this then allows a cut on the Cubital tunnel itself and pressure is thereby released.
Surgery for hand injuries will cover a huge range of conditions. It may be that there is tendon damage, or damage to nerves, or severe lacerations. Fractures will also be a common complaint.
Ultimately, we could write thousands of words here outlining every type of potential hand injury one might encounter.
However, perhaps it is of more use to reiterate that Ms Breahna is a specialist in hand surgery and the treatment of hand injuries and so would discuss your requirements and suggest a plan of best action at a detailed consultation.
Hand Surgery Consultation Chester
As with all surgery, the consultation at the Chester clinic is a vital stage. It is the patient’s chance to talk and to tell the surgeon about their condition while the surgeon will ask probing questions and also factor in medical history to suggest a plan of best action.
Clearly, the more knowledge and expertise a surgeon has in an area, the more techniques they have at their disposal and the more previous cases to draw upon.
Entrusting a specialist also ensures you see a surgeon who is dealing with similar conditions on a regular basis, whereas more of an allrounder might only very occasionally undertake hand surgery. This non specialist is also less likely to be across the latest developments or techniques and treatments.
At a consultation it is also vital to ensure you feel comfortable with the surgeon and then they instill confidence.
A second, follow-up consultation is common.
Cost of Hand Surgery Treatment
Because hand surgery covers such a broad range of conditions it is impossible to suggest a likely price in this page.
However, Ms Breahna would provide an obligation free quote at consultation. This would include all fees and assume that any procedure was carried out at the wonderful Grosvenor Hospital on Wrexham Road in Chester.
Recovery From Hand Surgical Procedures
As with cost, there are a range of conditions and so recovery will vary. However, full details would be provided and follow-up consultations and check-ups booked in.
Ms Breahna provides the highest standards of patient care and is available to answer any concerns or queries a patient may have.

Chester is a beautiful walled city located within the county of Cheshire and on the River Dee.
The city was founded as Castrum, the Roman fort located there called Deva Vitrix – this was one of the main army camps in the UK. Deva then became a major settlement in its own right.
Chester has a long and rick history, it was given city status as far back as 1541 and its importance is shown by the castle and walls, these remaining among the most complete city walls in the UK. The castle received numerous extra fortifications through the centuries, the initial castle built under the instructions of William the Conqueror.
Chester remained important through later centuries, for instance the nearby Newtown, with the Shropshire Union Canal were key to distribution.
The city is now a popular one for tourists, this a key industry, so too are public administration and retail.
A large number of well-known celebrities and famous people were born in Chester, or lived in the city, these include Russ Abbot, Beth Tweddle, Ben Foden and many people’s favourite James Bond – Daniel Craig.
