Hand Surgery Q & A
Which conditions require hand surgery?
When you have a condition affecting your hand or wrist, and it doesn’t respond to non-surgical treatment, you may need hand surgery for lasting relief. Meridian Plastic Surgery features a board-certified hand surgeon who performs surgical procedures to address common disorders affecting your hands, including:
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel is due to a pinched nerve in your wrist. This condition causes persistent numbness, tingling, and other symptoms in your hand and arm.
De Quervain’s tenosynovitis
This condition affects the tendons in your wrist. With de Quervain’s tenosynovitis, you may experience pain when performing repetitive tasks like gripping and turning your wrist.
Dupuytren’s contracture occurs when a thick, knotted cord of tissue freezes your fingers into a permanently bent position. Hand surgery is the most lasting solution for this condition.
A noticeable lump, a ganglion cyst usually develops along the joints or tendons of your wrist or hands. Hand surgery can correct a cyst if aspiration or immobilization of the joint has failed to help.
Torn or damaged tendons
A torn or damaged tendon in your hand may limit your movement. If medications or a splint haven’t helped, you may need hand surgery to mend the torn or damaged section.
What is hand surgery for trigger finger?
With trigger finger, your finger is stuck in a bent position permanently. This condition is due to inflammation that restricts the space around the tendon in your affected finger.
If you've tried non-surgical measures without success, hand surgery at Meridian Plastic Surgery may be the best option. Your surgeon makes a small incision at the base of your affected finger and repairs the section of the tendon sheath that's damaged.
How do I know whether I need hand surgery?
Your surgeon at Meridian Plastic Surgery evaluates your hand to determine whether you may benefit from hand surgery. You can expect them to examine your hand, ask about your symptoms, and recommend imaging tests if needed.
They thoroughly discuss the benefits and recovery time associated with hand surgery so you can make the best decision for you.
