We often take our hands and fingers for granted until we experience pain and limited function. Our hands and fingers allow us to have a tactile experience, utilizing them for grasp and touch in our daily activities. Because of this we understand how important it is to live free of pain and restriction.
The procedures available aim to repair, restore and release any of your hand limitations and previous trauma you’ve experienced so that you can return to using your hands freely at the optimal level of function and of course, without pain.
Procedures are safe and reliable and involve improved recovery times. We will always provide as much information as possible so that you feel comfortable and informed about your decision.
Common hand conditions treated:
- Carpal tunnel release – aims to release the compressed nerve in the wrist seen in carpal tunnel syndrome, to provide relief and reduce any further nerve damage.
- Dupuytrens disease surgery – involves band removal of the fibrous tissue in the palm and fingers occurring in those with Dupuytrens disease.
- Ganglion cysts removal – aims to remove ganglions or synovial cysts from areas such as the joints and tendons of the hand, wrist and feet
- Hand & wrist Traumatic injuries including fractures, tendon injuries, digit amputation, nerve lacerations and blood vessel lacerations. Surgery aims to repair injuries to the hand and wrist to bring relief and optimise the best outcome for the patient.
- Arthritis-related deformities
- Osteoarthritis surgery – aims to provide long-term relief to osteoarthritic pain and restore function of the hand, fingers and thumb when other measures have been ineffective.
- Rheumatoid arthritis: A disabling disease that can cause severe inflammation in any joint of the body. In the hand, it can deform fingers, cause pain and impair movement.
- Trigger Finger release surgery – releases the sheath of the finger or thumb that causes locking, tenderness and painful nodules in trigger finger conditions.
- Congenital hand difference – These can be either major or minor. Some possible differences include missing parts (failure of formation), webbed or fused parts of the hand (failures of separation), extra parts in the hand (duplication), or parts that are larger or smaller than normal.
The hand is made up of bone, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels. The relationship between these structures is delicate and requires special expertise. An injury or disease affecting any or all of these structures can impair the use of your hand.
Our qualified plastic and hand surgeon is specially trained to treat the delicate and complex structure of the hand and wrist.
