Treatment for trigger finger depends on the severity of symptoms. Most cases respond well to medication, splints and steroid injections. Severe cases are treated surgically. There are two types of surgery: open surgery and percutaneous surgery. Both are performed under local anaesthesia. In open surgery, a small incision is made in the palm of your hand and the affected tendon sheath is cut to allow it to move more freely. A cut is not required in percutaneous surgery. The same needle that is used to inject local anaesthesia into your hand is then also used to slice through the ligament.
