What is the goal of Trigger Finger Release surgery?
This surgery involved the release of a small band of tissue in the palm in order to allow free and painless motion of the finger flexor tendons. There is a tight ligament that causes the finger flexor tendons to become inflamed due to friction. This surgery corrects the symptoms of trigger finger, which are:
- Pain and swelling of the finger or thumb
- A clicking, locking, or stiff sensation in the finger or thumb when attending to move it.
Trigger Finger Release surgery results
Trigger finger release surgery can relieve pain and restore full movement to the finger or thumb.
What to expect with Trigger Finger Release surgery
Trigger finger release surgery is performed using local anaesthesia. The surgeon releases the tissue through a small incision in the palm of the hand, thereby restoring normal painless motion of the affected digit.
