Trigger Finger Surgery for Patients in New Albany, IN

Trigger Finger Surgery New Albany IN If you live in New Albany, Indiana, and are experiencing trigger finger—also referred to as stenosing tenosynovitis—the experts at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic are ready to help. Our independently owned orthopedic clinic includes a hand surgeon and several other board-certified orthopedic specialists who treat patients using the latest breakthroughs in orthopedic care. For some, trigger finger surgery may be the best treatment option.

Trigger finger most often affects the ring finger and is characterized by inflammation or thickening of the A1 pulley—one of the bands of tissue that holds the flexor tendons against the finger bones. The flexor tendons, which may also become inflamed over time, can form small nodules on their surface. These nodules can cause an uncomfortable sensation of popping or catching when passing through an inflamed A1 pulley, making it difficult to fluidly and comfortably move one or more fingers. Eventually, it may become impossible to fully straighten the affected finger without considerable pain.

When Is Trigger Finger Surgery Necessary?

Many people are able to effectively treat trigger finger through a combination of conservative therapies like splinting, exercises, and anti-inflammatory injections. However, if symptoms do not improve with a conservative approach, trigger finger surgery may be recommended to divide and release the inflamed A1 pulley and allow the flexor tendons to move more comfortably. Many trigger finger surgeries can be performed through small incisions and require minimal recovery periods.

Contact Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic today if you are displaying trigger finger symptoms or if you would like to consult with an orthopedic specialist about your treatment options. Our professionals can provide you with straightforward information about trigger finger surgery and help you make an informed decision about your care.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
