Acute Tendon Trauma

Injuries to the tendons in the hand rarely fix themselves without surgery. Tendons require their ends to be sutured together when they are cut. This also may require some minor probing and repair following injury to ensure full use of the finger will return.

Minor surgery can be done at Epping in the practice but if more complex surgery is required, this can be arranged through hospital. Recovery will depend on the extent of the injury and it may be assisted by occupational hand therapy.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. The information provided here is for general educational purposes only. If you would like to know more, please contact us on (02) 9868 5155 to arrange an appointment or e-mail any enquiries to Dr Peter Haertsch.
