We will first try non-surgical methods, such as 
  • Wearing a splint
  • Anti-inflammatory medications 
  • Steroid injection to the finger 
  • Hand therapy
If symptoms persist, surgery is recommended. It is a minor procedure performed under local anesthesia, which involves the release of the tendon tunnel to create more space.  There will only be a small scar.

Will it recur?
Sadly, it may, but at a low recurrence rate, especially with non-surgical methods. With surgery, recurrence rate can be as low as <5%.
