How does it work

​FREE EVALUATION OF YOUR FINDINGS

After initial contact via phone or email, we will ask you to provide us with your finding (RTG, SONO or MRI scan), with a brief description of what your goals are for the procedure. This is only used to ensure the best evaluation for your personal needs, and all information sent to us will be held in strict confidence. Of course you are under no obligation at this stage, and the evaluation is completely free of charge. 

 

QUESTIONNAIRE

Next, we will ask you to fill in our questionnaire, as we need to be confident that there are no existing medical conditions which could affect you undergoing the procedure. Please fill in as much information as possible, and we will get back to you with an evaluation of your questionnaire by one of our doctors.

 

DEPOSIT PAYMENT

Once an agreement has been made for the proposed dates, prices, and surgeon who will perform the procedure, the next step will be to pay the deposit to the clinic account. The deposit is a 100% booking guarantee of your date. If you do not show up for the surgery without providing us with a reason, we cannot return the deposit back. Of course in the event that you are ill or if an emergency prevents you from keeping your date and you are able to notify us in a timely manner, we are able to find new dates for you and use this deposit to secure a new date. The outstanding balance must be paid on the day of the surgery (we accept cash, credit cards, or a direct bank transfer into clinic account).

TRIGGER FINGER PROCEDURE

Trigger finger is a condition affecting one or more of the tendons in the hand, causing difficulty in bending a particular finger or thumb. The tendon may become swollen and inflamed, preventing it from operating smoothly in the sheath which surrounds the tendon. The finger may get stuck in a bent position and suddenly straighten like the trigger of a gun being pulled and then released. In severe cases the finger may become locked in the bent position. It often affects the thumb - ‘trigger thumb’ - or even a couple of fingers at once. People who use either hand for repetitive gripping actions are more likely to develop the condition.

In some people the condition disappears without treatment, but if left untreated for too long the finger or trigger thumb may become permanently bent. Treatment includes something as basic as resting the affected fingers, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, wearing a splint on the finger or thumb, and, if these fail, either ‘percutaneous release’ or open surgery. In the former your hand is numbed with a local anaesthetic, a needle inserted into the tissue around the tendon, and used to break the constriction blocking the movement of the tendon.  In the latter a surgeon cuts open the constriction from a small incision at the base of the affected finger. In both cases a local anaesthetic is used to deaden the hand.

POST PROCEDURE CARE

After percutaneous release you can go home immediately, it can be performed by your doctor and, as it doesn’t involve an incision, there are no stitches to remove and no scarring to heal. Open surgery on the palm - an outpatient procedure - also allows you to return home immediately but the dressings have to remain in place for a few days and the palm of the hand may be sore for a couple of weeks. You can drive after a few days, and play sports after two to three weeks. If you’ve had more than one finger operated on the recovery time may be rather longer.
