Trigger finger is a condition in which a finger or thumb becomes temporarily “stuck” in a bent position due to inflammation in the tendon sheaths. The goal of treatment is to reduce inflammation in the tendon and sheath to allow unimpeded tendon movement.

When nonsurgical treatments are not appropriate or fail to relieve symptoms, a doctor may recommend an in-office procedure called percutaneous release or surgery. Both procedures release the constricting tendon sheath tissue.
It should be noted that a patient does not necessarily have to have a cortisone injection in order to undergo a percutaneous release or surgery.
