Trigger finger, also called Trigger Thumb, arises either from thickening of the flexor tendon sheath (which occurs following tenosynovitis of infective, traumatic or rheumatolgical origin) or from nodular thickening of the flexor tendon itself which may be congenital.Trigger finger treatment at our surgery center is a minimally invasive procedure that alleviates the following symptoms:
- Pain with gripping
- Painful locking fingers
Endoscopic Trigger Release is a trigger finger surgery that uses a tiny camera attached to a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope. Dr. Ray guides the scope through 1.0mm incision, made in the hand, allowing him to see the structures of the hand and wrist with incredible accuracy. The goal of this trigger finger treatment is to open the tendon tunnel in the hand, allowing the tendon to slide through more easily. This procedure relieves the pain and mobility issues associated with Trigger Finger.
This procedure takes only 7 minutes, and most of our patients have recovered after just 7 days.Why Minimally Invasive?
