Hand surgery deals with both surgical and non-surgical treatment of conditions and problems that may take place in the hand, upper extremity or fingers which includes injury, infection, or trauma. It can be required when the bones are unstable for example, a compound hand fracture in which the bones visibly pierce the skin.
Fractured hand surgery is also necessary if bones are shattered, often the result of a crushing injury. If your hand requires surgery, wires, screws or plates can be implanted in the fractured hand to hold the pieces of bone in place.
Carpal Tunnel syndrome (CTS)
A medical condition due to compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist at the carpal tunnel. The main symptoms are pain, numbness, and tingling commonly found in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and the thumb side of the ring fingers.
De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis
An inflammation of tendons on the side of the wrist at the base of the thumb. These tendons include the extensor pollicis brevis and the abductor pollicis longus tendons, which extend the joints of the thumb.
A tumour or swelling on top of a joint or the covering of a tendon. It mimics a sac of liquid (cyst). Inside the cyst is a thick, sticky, clear, colorless, jellylike material. Depending on the size, cysts may feel firm or spongy.
Tendon Repair, A surgery done to treat a torn or damaged tendon. Tendons are the soft, band-like tissues that connects muscles to bone. When the muscles contract, the tendons pull the bones and cause the joints to move. When tendon damage occurs, movement may be gravely limited, the damaged area may feel weak or painful. Tendon repair surgery may be helpful for people who have tendon injuries that are making it difficult for them to move a joint or are excruciating painful.
