Trigger Finger Release Denver
Trigger finger is a stiff or locked joint in a finger or thumb.
Typically, there is pain in the palm at the base of one or more of their digits that is worsened by moving that digit. Sometimes that digit will lock or catch. Trigger finger usually is a result of swollen tendons, tight tendon sheaths, a growth on the tendon. In more advanced stages, the finger may become locked in position and the patient may have to manually move the finger to undo it.
Dr. Tirre’s first line of treatment is typically a steroid injection which is easily performed in the office. If this does not correct the problem or if the patient has a more advanced stage, Dr. Tirre may recommend surgery. Carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger may present hand in hand.
Trigger finger release is performed as an outpatient procedure and most patients tolerate this surgery very well. As with any surgical procedure, there may be risks associated. Dr. Tirre will go over these benefits and risks at the time of initial consultation.
