The history of hand surgery in Indonesia began with the growing interest in performing a complicated hand surgery. Since the 1970s, hand surgery in Indonesia has made headway, especially when it comes to science and education. The development of hand surgery in Indonesia is not limited to a microsurgery area, but also covers more modern techniques, including reconstruction, minimal invasive surgery, arthroscopy, and various kinds of innovations and developments to overcome the high cost of health, especially medical devices in Indonesia. Voluntary visitations to help or take surgery procedures in many remote areas in Indonesia, such as Papua and Nusa Tenggara, have also contributed to the development of hand surgery. Currently, hand surgery in Indonesia is improving and growing significantly.
