Trigger Finger Katy TX
Do you ever notice catching, or triggering, of your fingers? You may be suffering from a condition called stenosing tenosynovitis, commonly known as “trigger finger”. This is caused by swelling and inflammation of the sheath that surrounds the tendon of your finger. Symptoms can range from occasional tenderness and catching to painful, rigid locking of the finger. The exact cause of trigger finger is not clear, though it can be associated with diabetes, gout, and other inflammatory illnesses.
Oftentimes, long-term relief can be obtained with non-surgical treatments. If symptoms persist or recur, then surgical release of a portion of the tendon sheath may be indicated. This procedure can be done under local anesthesia with or without sedation on an outpatient basis. If you are concerned that you may have trigger finger, we invite you to put your hands in our hands. Contact our office today at 832-232-HAND (4263) to schedule an appointment with one of our hand specialists.
