Surgery treatment for trigger finger
In moderate cases, conservative treatment, including rest, a splint, and anti-inflammatory medication, can be very effective: a cortisone injection is sometimes recommended.
The surgical option is quite simple, consisting in two tiny incisions, under local anesthesia, to release the ligament in the tunnel at the base of the locked finger.
Relief is usually immediate. The area will be sore for a few weeks. Therapy will be required for severe cases where the wrist joint has become stiff.
Endoscopic treatment of trigger finger
Endoscopic decompression is the latest, least invasive, and fastest technique to treat trigger finger, restore the full use of the hand, and help improve quality of life.
The procedure takes just a few minutes and consists in two tiny incisions and a microscopic camera and endoscope to release the ligament causing the locking of the finger.
Unlike conventional methods, which require recovery time of 6 to 8 weeks, endoscopic treatment allows for full recovery in just 48 hours. The results are immediate and lasting.
