Treatment for wrist and hand problems in Harley Street
Arthritis of the base of the thumb
Any condition that damages a joint is called arthritis. In a normal joint, cartilage covers the ends of the bones and allows them to move smoothly and painlessly against one another. Read more about the treatment of Arthritis of the base of the thumb.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition caused by compression of the median nerve in the wrist. The nerve passes through a space in wrist called the carpal tunnel and is accompanied in the tunnel by a number of tendons. The nerve provides sensation in the thumb, index, middle and half of the ring fingers of the hand, as well as innervating some of the muscles of the thumb. Read more about the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome.
DeQuervain’s tenovitis is a condition caused by inflammation of tendons and their surrounding sheath along the thumb side of the wrist. Read more about the treatment of DeQuervain’s tenovitis.
Dupuytren’s disease is an abnormal thickening of the fascia (the tissue between the skin and the tendons in the palm) that may limit movement of one or more fingers. In some patients, a cord forms beneath the skin that stretches from the palm into the fingers. Read more about the treatment of Dupuytren’s disease.
Ganglion cysts are very common lumps that sometimes grow in the hand and wrist. The cysts are generally found on the back or palmar side of the wrist when they are commonly called a ganglion, the end joint of a finger where they are called mucous cysts, and at the base of a finger. Read more about the treatment of ganglion cysts.
Mallet finger is due to rupture of the extensor tendon at its attachment to the finger close to the base of the nail. It is normally caused by stubbing the tip of the finger. Read more about the treatment of mallet finger.
The scaphoid is the most common of the carpal bones to be injured. A fracture of the scaphoid normally results from a fall onto the outstretched hand. Read more about the treatment of scaphoid fractures.
Tendon and nerve conditions
The hand and wrist are the most commonly injured part of the body. The hand’s function is sensation and grip. Internal complex structures of tendons, nerves and blood supply can unfortunately be damaged. Read more about the treatment of tendon and nerve conditions.
Stenosing tenosynovitis, commonly known as trigger finger or trigger thumb, is caused by the tendons that bend the finger catching or sticking within an interal tunnel at the base of the finger. The cause for this condition is not always clear. The medical conditions of rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and diabetes may be associated with trigger finger/thumb symptoms.
