Common Conditions Treated In Igtham

  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: This is a disease where scar tissue forms just beneath the skin of the fingers and the palm. Over time, this tissue contracts and causes the fingers to roll in towards the palm.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: This is a condition where there is increased pressure on the nerve that crosses in front of the wrist. It causes pain in your hand, wrist, or arm and numbness.
  • Trigger Finger/Trigger Thumb: This condition affects the tendons in the hand and when the tendon gets stuck the affected finger or thumb becomes stuck in a bent position.
  • Wrist Arthritis/Base of Thumb Arthritis: Osteoarthritis occurs when the joints become inflamed because the cartilage is worn down. Pain and stiffness are the most common symptoms.
  • Tendonitis: This is the inflammation and swelling of the tendons and leads to pain when grasping or pinching. Swelling may also occur.
  • RSI: Repetitive strain injuries (RSI) are common, especially in the hands and wrists that perform repetitive tasks for work or sport. These can cause pain, stiffness, or numbness.

Nuggets of Wisdom


Trapeziometacarpal arthritis is a relatively common condition. It gives pain on key pinch and pin pinch.  Patients lose the first web space span (i.e cannot pull a large book from a shelf).  Early treatment consists of anti-inflammatories, injection and splintage.  The results of surgery are extremely good.
