If any of the tendons in your hand are damaged and non-surgical treatment is not helping, surgery may be needed to repair them and help restore movement in the affected fingers or thumb.
In many cases, our surgeons will use local anesthesia while the patient is awake when performing surgery for tendonitis.
The surgery is minimally invasive, allowing patients to go home on the same day, experience a quicker recovery time and have a lower risk of side effects and complications. During the procedure, our surgeons will make a small incision in your wrist, hand or finger to locate and repair the damaged tendon.
However, if the tendon damage is more complex, the procedure may be carried out under general anesthesia. Our Orthopedic Surgeons are experts in giving you the full spectrum of care that you need to heal.
