The various types of treatments are:

  • Percutaneous release surgery: In this surgery, the surgeon inserts a needle into the bottom of the digit to cut the tendon sheath.
  • Tenosynovectomy: It includes the removal of the tendon sheath, which allows the finger to move freely again.
  • Trigger finger surgery dressing: Patients should retain the dressing on the operated finger for a few days and also ensure the cleanliness of the wound after removal of the dressing.
