Specialty

Trigger finger and hand numbness

Our center proudly offers a 2019 National Research Council award-winning trigger finger treatment using ultrasound-guided percutaneous needle surgery. This minimally invasive procedure is a routine part of our practice. A specialist doctor performs an ultrasound examination of the area around the trigger finger before inserting a needle to cut the swollen and thickened tendon sheath encasing and constricting the tendon, causing pain and impeding tendon mobility. This innovative technique requires only 5 minutes of procedural time, performed in the examination room, obviating the need for large-incision open surgery, resulting in treatment costs that are 30% lower. Patients on blood thinners do not need to stop their medications, entailing increased safety, and no suture needs removal. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. This technique can be applied to treat numbness of fingers and hands caused by carpal tunnel syndrome and De Quervain’s tenosynovitis.
