Trigger Finger Release
A trigger finger release surgery, also known as tenolysis, may be suggested by your hand surgeon when conservative treatments prove to be ineffective and if your finger or thumb is stuck in a bent position.
The procedure aims to prevent permanent stiffness by releasing the A1 pulley, which is blocking tendon movement, so that the flexor tendon can glide smoothly through the tendon sheath.
Trigger finger release is done by making a small incision in your palm to release the A1 pulley and because it is considered a fairly small and simple surgery, local anaesthesia is usually applied to the area.
You should experience significant improvement in your range of motion in the affected finger as well as pain relief after the surgery.
