TRIGGER FINGER RELEASE
The TRIGGER FINGER RELEASE is a surgery performed to treat a finger or thumb that gets stuck in a bent position, as if you were squeezing a trigger.
The surgery is done under local anesthesia or a nerve block to prevent pain. You may be awake during the procedure. During the surgery,
Your surgeon will make a small cut in your skin just below the tunnel of your trigger finger.
Next, your surgeon will make a small cut in the tunnel (sheath covering the tendon) and then ask you to move your finger.
Once you can move your finger, your surgeon will close your skin with stitches and put compression or a tight bandage on your hand.
