Trigger Finger Surgery

Trigger finger (stenosing tenosynovitis) is a painful condition that affects the tendons in the hand. As the finger or thumb is bent towards the palm, the tendon gets stuck and the finger clicks or locks

Around 2-3% of people develop trigger finger. While the cause of trigger finger is not known, certain factors may increase the likelihood of it developing. For example, it is more common in:

* females,
* people who are over 40 years of age, and
* people with certain medical conditions.

These medical conditions include other conditions in the hand, such as Dupuytren’s contracture, and some long-term conditions, such as diabetes. Around 10% of people with diabetes develop trigger finger.
