    Treating Hand and Wrist Pain with Surgery at St. Thomas More Hospital in Cañon City

    Depending on the severity and cause of your hand pain, the first approach to treatment is usually medication and physical therapy. If these treatments do not provide the desired relief, your doctor may recommend surgery to restore comfort and mobility. The orthopedic surgeons at St. Thomas More are experts at treating hand and wrist pain with the following kinds of procedures:

    • Carpal tunnel release - relieves pressure on the median nerve and reduces the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Wrist arthroscopy - allows the surgeon to see the inside of the injured joint to diagnose and treat wrist problems
    • De Quervain’s tendinosis treatment - relieves pain caused by irritation and swelling
    • Wrist fusion - fuses the wrist bones with the forearm to reduce pain and increase strength in your wrist
    • Trigger finger release - opens up the tunnel in which your finger tendon glides and frees the tendon in your finger so it can move properly
    • Xiaflex injection and manipulation – this non-surgical, combination treatment relieves the finger bend caused by Dupuytren’s contracture
