Trigger Finger Surgery

Trigger finger (also known as stenosing tenosynovitis) is a condition of the hand that causes the thumb or fingers to lock or click during flexion movements. There is often associated swelling of the affected finger and pain in the palm.

Trigger finger is often caused by repeated movements or forceful use of the finger or the thumb but can also develop spontaneously without cause. It can sometimes be associated with conditions that cause inflammation or thickening of finger tendons, such as rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes. If nonsurgical treatments such as anti-inflammatory measures, splinting, and physical therapy fail, consider private trigger finger release surgery in Canada at Surgical Solutions Network.

What Is the Goal of Trigger Finger Release Surgery?

A tight ligament can cause the finger flexor tendon 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 attempting to move it

What To Expect With Trigger Finger Release Surgery

Trigger finger release surgery is performed using local anaesthesia. The surgeon releases a band of tissue through a small incision in the palm of the hand, thereby restoring the normal, painless motion of the affected digit.

What Is Recovery Like After Trigger Finger Surgery?

Full functional recovery from trigger finger release surgery typically takes about 4 to 6 weeks. During this period, patients should focus on the following:

  • Allow the small incision in the palm to heal and strengthen properly.
  • Keep sutures clean and dry to prevent infection and promote healing.
  • Restore finger motion and strength by performing hand exercises at home.

Physical therapy is rarely required after this procedure, with home exercises often being sufficient for a full recovery.
