Trigger finger release

Trigger finger is where the finger or thumb gets locked into place when bent towards the palm. Surgery involves dividing a ligament to release the tendon.

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)

CTS is caused by the compression of the median nerve at the wrist in the carpal tunnel, resulting in pain and numbness in the fingers. It can be treated with steroids, splinting and physiotherapy, and, in severe cases, surgery.

Dupuytren’s release

Dupuytren’s contracture occurs in the hand where the fingers bend towards the palm and cannot be fully straightened. Treatment includes surgery (fasciectomy) to remove the tissue causing the fingers to bend, or an injection to break down this tissue.

Fasciectomy

Another name for the hand surgery that is performed to treat Dupuytren’s contracture, where the fingers bend towards the palm and can’t be fully straightened.

Ganglion cyst removal

A ganglion cyst is a fluid-filled swelling that develops near a joint or tendon, usually on the wrist, hand or fingers. The fluid is either drained out of the cyst using a syringe, or the cyst is removed during surgery.

Minor lumps and bumps

Minor lumps and bumps on the hands and wrists, such as cysts, moles and lipomas (benign tumours) are easy to treat via minor surgery.
