Tendon Release for DeQuervain’s Tenosynovitis
During your in-person consultation, Dr. Engineer will spend the necessary time to truly understand your situation and goals, as he does with each of his Las Vegas area patients. It is always his intention to create the best, safest, and most effective surgical plan for your specific needs.
The underlying cause of DeQuervain’s tenosynovitis is two tendons at the base of the thumb that have become swollen and inflamed, causing your pain, numbness, and swelling. During tendon release surgery, the surgeon makes a small incision in the tendon sheath, allowing more space for the tendons, with the expected result of relieving pain and discomfort.
