Trigger Finger Surgery Complications
Mild discomfort: I perform trigger thumb surgery under local anesthetic. It usually takes about 10-15 min. To identify and release the a1 pulley, which is what causes triggering. After surgery, the thumb will be immobilized for a few days. It takes about 2 weeks for the wound to heal. During the healing phase, you will be able to use the thumb. Narcotic pain medicine may be needed for a short time, post-op.
Many factors: This is a questions that should be answered by the surgeons financial counselor staff. It depends on the fee from the surgeon and wether it is performed in a surgical center or hospital and what insurance you are using. There are cash price options so price is very transparent. For example we post the price in our clinic so patients are not surprised.See 1 more doctor answer

Just had trigger finger surgery how long should I be out of work I also work in a kitchen how long should I be out of work
Until sutures out: Every patient varies how they respond to trigger finger release not only between each other, but also finger to finger and left to right. Also depending on the severity (if there was a contracture) it may take longer to rehabilitate. The primary concern would be osha requirements with the wounds, and therefore sutures typically have to be out. Many compliant patients can flex immediately.See 1 more doctor answer

Hard to say, but: Look for a hand surgeon who does the procedure with local anaesthesia in his office. This avoids the extra cost of hospital or surgery center facility fee and avoids the anaesthesia fee. It is like going to the dentist. Since it is done in the office, you and the doctor can agree on a fee.See 1 more doctor answer
