The following are just some of the conditions that a hand expert can treat at our Reno, NV, office:
- Baseball finger — Baseball finger (also referred to as “mallet finger,” “drop finger,” or “hammer finger”) is characterized by a drooping fingertip and an inability to completely straighten the finger. This condition develops when the finger is struck by an object, forcing it to bend too far. While many cases of baseball finger can be treated by applying a splint, others may require surgery by a hand expert.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome — When your carpal tunnel (the nerve and tendon passageway connecting your forearm to your hand) becomes compressed, it exerts pressure on your median nerve, thereby causing pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness throughout your hand and arm. Although a hand expert can often treat this condition using conservative methods, more severe cases may require surgery to increase the size of the carpal tunnel and relieve pressure on the median nerve.
- Trigger finger — Trigger finger occurs when the passageway around the finger’s flexor tendon narrows for an extended amount of time, irritating the tendon and causing scars and nodules to form. This results in the finger locking up as it attempts to straighten. If conservative treatment methods don’t bring relief, a hand expert can perform surgery to widen the space around the tendon so that the tendon can move around more freely.
