Choose the right path for your individual needs

At Practice Plus Group we offer fast access to high quality hand and wrist surgery via Self Pay, insured and NHS routes.

 


Wrist surgery types

Explore the treatment options for common conditions of the wrist or wrist joint.

Carpal tunnel syndrome treatment

CTS is caused by the compression of the median nerve at the wrist in the carpal tunnel, resulting in pain and numbness in the fingers. It can be treated with steroids, splinting and physiotherapy, and, in severe cases, carpal tunnel surgery.

De Quervain’s release

De Quervain’s is a  condition affecting the tendons located on the thumb side of your wrist which may require surgery to reduce pressure.

Trapeziectomy

The trapezium is a small bone in your wrist at the base of your thumb which is commonly affected by arthritis. A trapeziectomy is the removal of this bone.

Wrist arthroscopy

This surgical procedure is performed via keyhole surgery using an arthroscope attached to a video camera. It is used to repair damage caused to the wrist through trauma, wear and tear or damage to the ligaments and tendons.

Hand surgery types

Explore hand surgery and treatments.

Dupuytren’s contracture release surgery

Dupuytren’s contracture occurs in the hand where the fingers bend towards the palm and cannot be fully straightened. Treatment includes surgery (fasciectomy) where hand surgeons remove the tissue causing the fingers to bend, or an injection to break down this tissue.

Trigger finger release surgery

Trigger finger is where the finger or thumb gets locked into place when bent towards the palm. Surgery, either keyhole or open surgery, involves dividing a ligament to release the tendon.

Ulnar nerve release

The ulnar nerve goes around the back of the inner side of your elbow and through a tight tunnel between the forearm muscles. Pressure or compression on the nerve can result in numbness in the ring and little fingers, which minor surgery can release.

Wrist and hand surgery and treatment

Find treatments to relieve hand and wrist symptoms.

Ganglion cyst removal

A ganglion cyst is a fluid-filled swelling that develops near a joint or tendon, usually on the wrist, hand or fingers. The fluid is either drained out of the cyst using a syringe, or the cyst is removed during surgery.

Minor lumps and bumps

Minor lumps and bumps on the hands and wrists, such as cysts, moles and lipomas (benign tumours) are easy to treat via minor surgery on a day patient basis.
