This is a
common genetic condition that may form a band under the skin causing the fingers
to gradually curl towards the palm. There are a number of treatment options
including releasing the bend with a needle (needle fasciotomy or aponeurotomy),
an injection treatment (Xiapex) or surgery, usually under local anaesthesia. At
the consultation, after examining your hand, I will explain in details about the
different treatment options and discuss the best options for you. The cost for
the surgery starts from £500.
fasciotomy is a quick, clinic-base procedure that is suitable for many of
patients with good results and quick recovery. I have been practising this
technique for many years and the patients invariably have been very pleased with
the results. The cost for this starts from £250
Trigger finger is relatively common and results
in fingers clicking or locking, often painfully when you try to bend the finger.
This is caused by inflammation in the lining of the tendons that bend your
fingers which become lumpy and get stuck under tight structures (called pulleys)
This can be treated easily with steroid
injections (the effect may be temporary) and surgery - a quick (3 minutes)
curative procedure under local anaesthesia. The surgery costs from £1000, the
injection from £200
