PALM HARBOR, FL – Orthopedic Specialists of Palm Harbor is the only orthopedic practice in the greater Tampa Bay area to offer an in-office, ultrasound-guided trigger finger release (TFR) procedure.
More than 800,000 Americans are diagnosed with stenosing tenosynovitis, commonly known as trigger finger, each year. This condition causes snapping, catching, or locking as fingers are extended or flexed. In severe cases, the affected finger may become locked in a bent position.
“Often, this condition can be treated with NSAIDs, splinting, hand therapy and other conservative methods,” says R. Brian Williams, DO, Orthopedic Specialists’ board-certified hand and wrist surgeon.
“We’re proud to offer this ultrasound-guided trigger finger release right in our office for convenience and faster healing.”
Key benefits to this procedure include a quicker return to normal activities compared with traditional, “open” TFR surgery; a small (3 mm) incision that is typically closed without sutures; local anesthesia; and immediate relief from catching and locking symptoms.
Those interested in learning more about TFR using a minimally invasive approach can request an appointment with Dr. Williams by calling (727) 496-2391.
