That is a good idea: Hands are very frequently injured, and the best results are generally obtained if the first treatment is the best treatment. Tendon injuries in the fingers can be complex injuries that are difficult to repair and may require complicated hand therapy assistance postop for the best result. See a surgeon with specific expertise in the treatment of hand injuries(may be ortho, plastic or general.).
