  • Trigger finger: This condition is where one or more fingers become caught in the bent position. It may straighten with a quick snap, creating a popping or clicking sensation.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: This condition is where the nerve that supplies the hand becomes compressed as it runs through the space in the wrist called the carpal tunnel. This causes pain, tingling, and pins and needles.
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: This condition causes the connective tissue of the palm to form thick cords and lumps. These can shorten over time and stop the fingers from fully straightening. Patients with a severe form of Dupuytren’s Contracture may benefit from Dupuytren’s Contracture excision.
  • Tendonitis: This is inflammation of one of the flexible cords or tendons in the hand and wrist. It can occur as a result of overuse or a traumatic injury.

Nuggets of Wisdom


Many tendons run around the hand both on the palm side and also on the back of the hand.  These can be involved in inflammation and any inflammation of a tendon is described as a tendonitis.  These are often related to overuse syndromes through manual work, repetitive activity, sporting endeavours and also in the workplace due to repetitive keyboard use.  They can also occur against the backdrop of inflammation in the joints and systemic arthritis.

“Mr Dimitri Yanni, was an angel sent to me in my time of pain, my first meeting with Mr Yanni left me feeling totally confident that he would look after me. In fact after my surgery I was struggling with uncontrollable pain and emailed Mr. Yanni, although it was a bank holiday, his birthday and he was out of the country, he phoned me and made immediate arrangements for me to get to a hospital with full explanation of what he required them to do. Mr. Yanni has gone over and beyond, couldn’t have wished for anyone better to have taken care of me. Thank you so much for caring, professionalism.”
