Unveiling the Mysteries of Trigger Finger Release Surgery

Understanding Trigger Finger Surgery

Trigger finger, a condition characterized by a finger that clicks, snaps, or gets stuck in a bent position, can be a challenging ailment. While some individuals experience the finger eventually snapping back to a straight position, others require medical intervention to fully restore mobility. Trigger finger release surgery is a procedure designed to alleviate the pressure on the irritated tendon, enabling your finger to move freely. At City Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine , our expertise in orthopedic surgery spans both conservative and surgical treatments, offering patients relief from discomfort and immobility associated with trigger finger.

When is Trigger Finger Surgery Recommended?

Trigger finger surgery becomes a consideration when conservative treatments fail to alleviate these prevalent trigger finger symptoms:

  • Finger Stiffness
  • Audible Snapping, Clicking, or Popping Sensations During Finger Movement
  • Finger Pain
  • Finger Locking or Freezing in the Bent Position
  • Finger Stuck in Bent Position or Abruptly Popping Straight
  • Finger Tenderness, Especially Around Finger Joints
  • Bump at the Finger Base

The Anatomy of Trigger Finger Surgery

Trigger finger surgery aims to reinstate finger motion while reducing tendon inflammation. When you opt for trigger finger surgery at our orthopedic practice, you can anticipate the following:

  1. Incision: Your surgeon makes a small incision in your palm.
  2. Tendon Sheath Release: The tendon sheath encasing the tendon is meticulously cut to relieve pressure and facilitate smooth tendon movement.
  3. Closure: Your incision is meticulously closed and sutured.
  4. Bandaging: A gentle cotton bandage is applied to your hand.
