Trigger Finger Release
Trigger finger release is a minimally invasive, same-day procedure done under a local or general anesthesia and/or regional nerve block. During trigger finger release, a small incision is made in the palm of your hand, and the constricted portion of the tendon sheath is carefully cut and divided, allowing your affected finger to flex and extend normally without triggering. Because trigger finger release is an outpatient procedure, you are typically given pain medication and are able to go home the same day. Following the trigger finger surgery, your surgeon may recommend hand therapy and exercises to prevent scar tissue build-up and to ensure a complete recovery.
