What is Trigger Finger Release?
A trigger finger release is a surgical procedure that treats the condition known as trigger finger syndrome. The less than 30-minute outpatient procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia
During the procedure, the following steps are performed:
- A small incision is made in the palm
- The tendon is divided and released
- The finger is moved to ensure it no longer catches or locks
- The incision is carefully closed and dressed
Patients experience symptom relief after the effects of local anesthesia wear off and they are able to move their finger. A return to normal activities occurs after minor soreness from the incision quickly goes away. Stitches are usually taken out 1-2 weeks after the procedure.
