Trigger Finger Surgery

Trigger finger is a common condition that restricts the movement of fingers or thumb. These tendons, which are responsible for flexing fingers, pass through these anatomical structures called pulleys. Common cause of trigger finger is inflammation in this pulley system of the tendon responsible for directing the tendons that bend finger. Too tight pulley can cause the finger to bend and stay into a bent position and make it very painful and difficult to straighten.

Steroid injection can be considered as one of the method of treatment to provide temporary relief. Trigger finger procedure is a day surgery, which requires 1-2 hours under local or intravenous sedation anesthesia. Our aim of surgery is to give the tendon more area to slide through the opening of the tunnel. There is an 1-2 cm incision is usually made in line with the finger in order to release the pulley by cutting the tendon sheath. Trigger finger surgery is safe and effective when experienced hand surgeon performs it. We are proud to offer this surgery by 2 of our very experienced hand surgeon available at Hasan Surgery.
