Finger Treatments

Fingertip Injury Treatment

If the fingertip is severely injured or crushed, the damaged tissue may need to be amputated to create a clean wound. In other cases, if the amputated part is still available, surgeons may attempt to reattach it through microsurgery to restore blood flow and nerve connections. Alternatively, a flap of skin and soft tissue from another part of the body can be moved to cover the open wound and allow healing while preserving finger length and function.

Fracture Treatment (Open
Reduction and Internal Fixation)

Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is a type of surgery that is used to treat serious fractures where the bones are broken into several pieces. During ORIF, the skin is opened to expose the broken bone, the fragments are repositioned into their normal alignment, and metal plates and screws are then placed to hold the bones while they heal. ORIF allows precise realignment of bone fragments under direct visualization by the surgeon.

Finger Amputations

Finger amputation is the partial or complete removal of the finger. This procedure is done when a finger is severely injured, infected, or diseased in a way that cannot be treated otherwise.

Trigger Finger Treatment

Trigger finger is a condition where a finger gets stuck in a bent position and pops or snaps when straightened. Treatment options include splinting or taping, steroid injections to reduce inflammation, and surgery to open the pulley that is constricting tendon movement. The goal is to relieve pain and restore normal movement to the affected finger.

Nail Repair

Nail repair surgery is done to fix a nail that has been damaged, often by trauma or injury. It involves numbing the finger and then removing the damaged part of the nail. The nail bed may then need to be repaired as well before the skin is stitched up. After the surgery, the finger is bandaged and heals over the next few weeks. With proper after, a new nail will grow back where the old one was.
