Useful information on restrictions of movement

OP duration: 1-2 hours. Local anesthesia, anesthesia administered to the arm or general anesthesia upon request. Outpatient or inpatient (1 night) possible.

If necessary, plastic splint for 7-10 days. Suture removal after 10 days. Treatment with physical therapy.

Able to return to work after 3-4 weeks. Sports after 4 weeks. However, surgery is not always the most suitable treatment option. In individual cases, targeted physical therapy treatment or injection therapy are just as likely to result in improved hand functionality.
