What is Trigger Finger?

Trigger finger, also known as trigger thumb or stenosing tenosynovitis, is a condition that involves the pulleys and tendons that control the bending of your fingers. The pulleys form a tunnel through which the tendons must glide. When the pulley at the base of the thumb becomes too thick or the tendon swells, movement is inhibited. This can result in pain, popping or a “catching” feeling in the finger or thumb. Trigger finger can also cause the digit to become stuck or locked, making it difficult to straighten or bend.

His board-certified skills have been appreciated by patients from Biloxi, Gulfport, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, Long Beach, Ocean Springs, and the surrounding Mississippi communities.

How is Trigger Finger Treated?

When treating stenosing tenosynovitis, the main goal is to get rid of the catching or locking and restore full movement to the finger. Our trigger finger patients in Biloxi may need to wear a splint, or Dr. Miller may recommend an anti-inflammatory medication. A steroid injection can also be an effective treatment. In more severe cases, surgery may be required.

If you are trying to decide if our trigger finger treatment is right for you, then Dr. Miller can help. He will explain your treatment options when you meet with him at Apogee Plastic Surgery. Any questions you have will be fully answered, and your concerns and wishes will be treated with understanding and respect.

Am I a Good Candidate for Trigger Finger Treatment?

Most men and women seeking help with stenosing tenosynovitis are bothered by discomfort, tenderness or a nodule at the base of the finger or thumb, where they join the palm. There is no clear cause of trigger finger, although it can be associated with other medical conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout and diabetes. Local trauma at the base of the fingers or thumb could be another factor. As a result, your suitability for a trigger finger treatment in Biloxi will depend on your individual situation.
