Trigger finger is a condition that results from thickening of the tendon in your palm which affects your fingers or thumb. It can often be alleviated through trigger finger treatment, though sometimes finger surgery is necessary. The symptoms include locking or clicking, pain, and stiffness (or any combination of these.) Occasionally, there is an actual lump in the palm that moves when you bend the finger.

A trigger finger specialist often begin treatment with a cortisone injection into the area adjacent to the tendon. The application of ice several times a day after the injection is also an important part of trigger finger treatment. If the injection is not effective or the symptoms recur, trigger finger surgery may be recommended.

Trigger finger surgery is also known as trigger finger release. It is done through a small incision in the palm of your hand. Trigger finger specialist at Florida Hand Center perform the trigger finger surgical procedures in the office.
