Whole Arm(Finger(s), Wrist, Elbow)

 

Trigger Finger Release

This surgery is performed to release trigger finger. Trigger finger is the painful condition caused by overuse of the flexor tendon. During the surgery, the surgeon will incise skin at base of involved finger in the palm to release flexor tendon.

 

De Quervain's Disease Release

This surgery is performed to release De Quervain's Disease. Overuse of two thumb tendons(i.e. abductor pollicis longus (APL) and extensor pollicis brevis (EPB)) will cause inflammation of tendon sheath and tendons and restrict functioning of tendons, resulting in painful De Quervain's Disease. During the surgery, the surgeon will incise along the thumb side of the wrist to locate thumb tendons and tendon sheath. An incision will then be made to split the tendon sheath top in order to create more space to release the pressure and restore free tendon gliding.

 

Carpal Tunnel Release

This surgery is performed to release carpal tunnel syndrome. Patients with the syndrome will have numbness and pain in thumb, index finger and middle finger. During the surgery, the surgeon will incise the wrist to reduce pressure in carpal tunnel and release median nerve.

 

Wrist Arthroscopy

This surgery is performed to diagnose and treat wrist pathological problems such as distal radius fracture. During the surgery, the surgeon will make incision on skin at wrist joint for insertion of arthroscope and surgical instruments. The surgeon will examine the joint through a monitor displaying images of the tissue captured by the arthroscope. Repair or removal of damaged area or flush out of the joint may be performed, in order to alleviate symptoms. Wrist arthroscopy can also be used to extract biopsy for laboratory investigation. This surgery has lower infection rate and smaller wound than traditional surgery.

 

Arthroscopic Excision of Olecranon Bursa

This surgery is performed to treat olecranon bursa. When elbows get injury especially hitting to hard surface, elbows may inflame or bleed to form a haematoma. It can cause redness, pain, inflammation and pus around affected elbows. Olecranon bursa can be incised and removed through surgery.

 

Endoscopic Ulnar Nerve Decompression

This surgery is performed to treat cubital tunnel syndrome. People have 3 nerves in arms. The nerve running along the ulnar is ulnar nerve. When ulnar nerve in the cubital tunnel behind the inside of the elbow is compressed, patients may feel numbness and weakness of hand and fingers, especially ring finger and little finger. More seriously, it may cause deformity of fingers and muscle atrophy. The above symptoms are belonged to cubital tunnel syndrome. During the surgery, the surgeon will decompress ulnar nerve or move the nerve from behind to the front of the elbow.

 

Elbow Arthroscopy

This surgery is performed to treat elbow joint pathological problems such as tennis elbow, elbow osteoarthritis, loose bodies and synovitis. During the surgery, the surgeon will insert an arthroscope into the elbow joint. The arthroscope will project images of elbow joint structure in a monitor. The surgeon will start treatment by observing the images.
