Trigger finger, or stenosing tenosynovitis, is a repetitive motion condition which can often occur as a result of typing and/or texting. If you suffer from trigger finger and conservative treatment options have not done the trick, you may be considering trigger finger release surgery.
Dr. Christian Woodbury, hand specialist with The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group, appeared on KSAT News last night to discuss a relatively new option called percutaneous trigger finger release, a minimally invasive procedure which can be performed in the office. Compared to open trigger finger release, the percutaneous method offers a smaller incision, no stitches, and a drastically reduced recovery period. Check out the full interview above to learn more.
