Trigger Finger Release

Trigger finger release

A trigger finger may happen without any injury or trauma. The finger may become stiff, tender or make a locking sound when using it. A surgery may be recommended to prevent permanent stiffness or if non-invasive treatments are unsuccessful.


A Trigger Finger Release is generally an elective procedure. It’s recommended if conservative treatments do not resolve your symptoms.

Recovery Time

This procedure is usually done on an out-patient basis. This means the patient is allowed to go home the same day as the surgery. Most patients are encouraged to immediately start using the finger, although you may feel some pain in the palm of your hand or finger as it recovers.
