Trigger finger is a condition that results in pain, stiffness, and a locking sensation that you feel when you bend or straighten your finger. Your ring finger and your thumb are typically the two fingers most commonly affected by this condition, but your other fingers are susceptible as well.
At Barrington Orthopedic Specialists, our highly-trained, certified specialists can perform trigger finger surgery. This minimally-invasive, outpatient procedure is designed to reconstruct the tendon of your finger to relieve pain and restore normal function. Our team will work alongside you during your surgery and provide you with rehabilitative advice to ensure a quick and healthy recovery.
If you are struggling with trigger finger symptoms, do not allow your condition to worsen. Schedule your first consultation with the team at Barrington Orthopedic Specialists today. If you’re in an emergency situation, visit the Immediate Care Clinic at our Schaumburg, IL location.
The goal of surgery is to widen the opening of the tunnel so that the tendon can slide through it more easily. This is usually done on an outpatient basis, meaning you will not need to stay overnight at the hospital.
Most people are given an injection of local anesthesia to numb the hand for the procedure.
The surgery is performed through a small incision in the palm or sometimes with the tip of a needle. The tendon sheath tunnel is cut. When it heals back together, the sheath is looser and the tendon has more room to move through it.
