Dr. Steven Brown
Surgery - Hand Surgery

In brief: Limited

Surgery requires local anesthesia, a small 1-1.
5 cm incision in the distal palm and takes aprox. 10-15 min to perform. No splint or cast is applied just a light soft dressing and motion of the finger is encouraged. Seems simple but be sure to seek out a qualified hand surgeon.
