About Trigger Finger
Also known as stenosing tenosynovitis, trigger finger is a condition that causes inflammation in the tendons of the fingers or thumb. This can then cause the finger to pop or click when it moves or in severe cases, can cause the finger to be stuck in a bent position. Other symptoms of trigger finger include tenderness or a bump at the base of the finger, finger stiffness in the morning, and your finger locking into a bent position and then suddenly straightening. Board-certified surgeon Dr. Steven Gordon in The Woodlands, TX offers advanced treatments and surgical procedures to effectively treat trigger finger and its symptoms. To learn more, we invite you to contact Gordon Plastic Surgery to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Gordon and his team.

Prior to suggesting a surgical procedure, Dr. Gordon may recommend less invasive treatments, including medication, splinting, or steroid injections. If more conservation options do not relieve the symptoms, he may then suggest a surgical procedure. Surgery to treat trigger finger involves a small incision at the base of the affected finger and cutting open the tightened pulley tissue just above the tendon to allow the finger to glide appropriately. This release of tissue does not impair finger function or strength. Following surgery, Dr. Gordon and his team will provide you with tips and recommendations to allow you to heal properly.
