When you suffer from tenosing tenosynovitis, also known as trigger finger, your fingers or thumbs painfully catch or lock when bent. This condition, an inflammation of the tendons (soft tissues) connected to the thumb and fingers, can be caused by a repetitive, forceful movement of the fingers or the thumb, or by gripping something for a long period of time. As some of the best hand surgeons in Arizona, Drs. Torabi perform an out-patient trigger finger surgery for men and women to eliminate joint locking, and restore full movement without pain. Although results may vary from patient to patient, our hand surgeons are both highly skilled plastic surgeons in Arizona with proven success rates in many types of plastic, reconstructive, and hand surgery. Trigger finger can be diagnosed with physical examination and an imaging technique, such as an X-ray or MRI. If you have a referral after a trigger finger diagnosis, you can call us to discuss your case, and to set up a consultation for surgery.
