Trigger Finger Treatment Avoids Surgery
Trigger Finger Treatment Program
- Ultrasound Guided Approach
- Nerve Release Techniques
Today, we did a follow up visit on a patient who came to us because they were suffering from finger flexor stenosing tenosynovitis, also known as trigger finger.
Innovative New Technique
We were able to complete his procedure using a relatively new, and innovative technique. This involves using an ultrasound rather than making an incision and cutting open the hand to see the tendon. We use a closed technique where we can see the tendon under ultrasound. And we were able to cut away the bands of scar tissue and adhesions that were causing the tendon to lock up.
It is now three months after the procedure and the patient is 100% symptom free.
So we give this case study because it shows an example of treatment alternatives for a patient who is suffering from trigger finger or any nerve pain, using the latest technologies that allow us to avoid making an incision.

Using ultrasound guidance we can see a tendon and its surrounding scar tissue. Using a fine surgical instrument we can frequently break up the scar tissue and release the tendon.
