Our hands are one of the most complex and mobile parts of the body, made up of a network of bones, nerves, tendons, and ligaments. Any diagnosis and treatment in this intricate area requires great expertise, knowledge, and skill. Mr Wilson offers treatments to address a variety of conditions, including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, DeQuervain’s and Dupuytren’s disease, ganglions, and trigger finger issues. We will discuss your treatment options in detail during your in-depth consultation.

Carpel tunnel syndrome occurs when pressure is applied to the median nerve as it passes through your wrist just under the carpal ligament. The result is painful pins and needles and numbness in your fingers. Pressure can be relieved by dividing the carpal tunnel ligament under local anaesthetic surgery.
If you suffer with trigger finger, the affected finger can bend normally but becomes stuck in a curled position and is hard to straighten. This is caused by thickening and sticking of the tendon which allows your finger to bend. You may occasionally need to use your other hand to help bring the finger back into the straight position. Releasing the cover of the tendon under local anaesthetic will free it up and relieve the condition.
Synovial fluid helps your joints and tendons move smoothly. Sometimes this thick fluid leaks out of the joint or tendon sheath and can form pockets of fluid (cysts) known as ganglions. These ganglions can feel hard when pressed and are most commonly found on the back of your wrist, but also occur in the palm and over the last joint of the fingers. If Ganglions become painful or restrict movement, the fluid can be drained using a needle.
Dupuytren’s contracture is a condition caused by tissue forming in the palm of your hand and your fingers. Though often minor and painless, it can also form bands of tissue that can make your fingers curl into your palm. For early disease you can have local anaesthetic surgery to divide or remove the tissue and release your fingers.
Treatment of arthritis in the hand and wrist is a complex specialty. However, arthritis at the base of the thumb can often be relieved by a steroid injection (administered in the clinic).
