Finger injury: In instances of severe finger injuries I always recommend evaluation by a hand surgeon to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment in an effort to avoid permanent damage to the finger which can be a life-long annoyance. Therefore if you have persistent pain, deformity or some residual functional disability, consult a hand surgeon.
