Trigger Finger Surgery


What is Trigger Finger Surgery?

Trigger Finger Surgery is a procedure done in order to release the tendon from the sheath when it is either causing pain or when the finger becomes 'locked'. Because it is a minor procedure, it can be performed as a day surgery with local anaesthetic. The surgeon will make a small cut into the palm of your hand and release the tendon from the part of the sheath it was catching on. Surgery is almost always successful and patients will regain normal use of your hand upon recovery.

Why do you need Trigger Finger Surgery?

This type of surgery is usually recommended when all other types of non-surgical treatment have failed to work or when your finger is locked (permanently stuck), or if another condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, is the cause of your trigger finger. Surgery is very effective and is usually a permanent solution to the problem.
