Would you have a hand or vascular surgeon operate on you if your arm cut to the tendons?

In brief: Hand surgeon

While both specialities have the ability to do an arterial repair, tendon and nerve repair in the forearm and hand should be seen by a specialist.

In brief: Hand

The hand surgeon has the expertise to treat the tendon and nerve injuries that are present.
May not be any vascular injuries that a vascular surgeon needs to address. Sometimes both may operate or a hand surgeon may do it all.

In brief: Hand Surgeon

Hand surgeons are trained to repair anything that is injured in the hand from bones, to tendons, to arteries and veins, to nerves and skin.
They may have had primary training in orthopaedics, plastic or general surgery and do extra training on just hand problems.
