Facilities and Services

For our inpatients we offer 25 beds in modern, comfortable rooms. For our international patients or patients who prefer a less hospital setting, we offer special rates at nearby hotels, allowing less financial burden while receiving post-surgical outpatient care before leaving our hospital.


Patient care takes place in our ambulatory clinics during office hours and on a 24-hour basis by our on-call-duty medical team, which handles not only replantation of fingers or hands but all plastic and hand surgery emergencies as well. We operate in 2 modern, fully equipped operating rooms and one ambulatory operating room.


As one of the leading university hospitals in the nation with the state-of-the-art facilities and the highest medical and technical excellence as well as knowledge in the field of Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery, we can provide our patients with the highest quality plastic surgery care available.

Replantation center

One of the unique services we offer is a 24-hour, round-the-clock, replantation center, which was recently granted a recertification as a Hand Trauma Center by IFSSH (“International Federation of Societies for Surgery of the Hand”). We treat all degrees of acute hand injuries and perform replantation of extremities – hands and fingers. We are especially proud of our finger and hand replantation success rate.
