Hand surgeons, as unique specialists, appreciate the complexity of the anatomy of the hand. A hand is not merely a group of anatomic structures but a separate organ that works by feeling, sending information to the brain, and enabling a variety of movements, from precise skills to firm tasks.

Acute and chronic problems interfere with complicated hand function and potentially influence work or daily life activities for a long time. Thus, the surgeon’s role is to propose appropriate treatment with predictable results.

This paper attempts to specify the preoperative considerations and their influence on the choice of surgical procedure and the assessment of results potentially influencing further treatment. We have divided the manuscript by anatomical structures, which is a natural surgical assessment and planning approach. The most common problems were highlighted to introduce the method of decision-making and surgical solutions.
