We provide a consultant led service to diagnose and treat conditions which affect the hands and wrists.
Our orthopaedic consultant surgeon, theatre nurse specialist, nurses, healthcare assistants, extended scope physiotherapists and support staff run clinics and day surgery for procedures including:
- Carpal tunnel decompression (surgery to relieve severe pain of carpel tunnel syndrome)
- De Quervain release (surgery to relieve the pain of this condition which affects your thumb tendons)
- Trigger finger release (surgery which will allow you to bend your fingers and thumb without pain)
- Mucoid cysts (ganglion cysts that develop at the end joint of a finger)
You will be referred to us by your GP, physiotherapist or a specialist physiotherapist.
