  3. Trigger Finger Release (Stenosing Tenosynovitis) Guide

Trigger finger and trigger thumb are medically called stenosing tenosynovitis; they can be treated by minor hand surgery called trigger finger release. In surgery, blockage causing the finger or thumb tendon to catch on itself is cleared, allowing the tendon to glide smoothly and unhindered. Most patients are able to go back to using their hand normally without the finger catching on itself.
