See a hand surgeon: This is a specialty area in which the practitioners can do remarkable things with the hand, and you should find one who has been trained appropriately and discuss the issues with them. Good luck and best wishes for a successful outcome.
Dr. Heidi Fowler

Agree w Dr. Raff: Depending on issue - hand surgery or plastic surgeon may be of help.
