Trigger Finger Surgery

  • What is Trigger Finger Surgery?

    Trigger finger surgery is done to release the tendon from the sheath when it is causing pain or the finger becomes ‘locked’. Trigger finger surgery is a minor procedure that can be performed as day surgery with local anaesthetic. The surgeon will make a small cut into the palm and release the tendon from the part of the sheath it was catching on. Surgery is almost always successful and normal use of the hand will be regained upon recovery.

  • You will usually need to have trigger finger surgery if all other types of treatment have not worked or if another condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, is the cause of your trigger finger. Surgery is very effective and is usually a permanent solution to the problem.
