Common Conditions Treated In Kemsing

  • Trigger Finger: Commonly reported symptoms of this condition include a bent finger or thumb that pops when it straightens and pain or tenderness in the inflamed nodule.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Common symptoms of CTS include numbness or a tingling sensation in the fingers or pain in the hand and wrist.
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: This is a hand condition where the thickening of the underlying fibrous tissue of the palm causes the fingers to bend inwards. Patients may not be able to fully straighten their fingers.
  • Base of Thumb Arthritis/Wrist Arthritis: Arthritis is an inflammatory condition of the joints and the most common type – osteoarthritis is caused by wear and tear in the joints. It is a degenerative joint disease, so as you age, you may be more prone to suffer from it.
  • Tendonitis: When the tendons in the hand and wrist become inflamed this can lead to pain and swelling.
  • RSI: Repetitive movements can take their toll on our hands and wrists and RSI can lead to pain, swelling, or a dull ache.

Nuggets of Wisdom


There is anecdotal evidence that there is an increase in the incidence.  This is ascribed to the widespread availability of gymnasia and the modern habit of walking around holding a mobile phone to the ear with the elbow hyperflexed.  Whereas the thresholds for intervention in carpal tunnel syndrome are low (the results of carpal decompression are very good), the same cannot be applied to ulnar neuritis.  Surgery is a last resort. Modification of ADL, splintage and avoidance of precipitating daily activities are the mainstay of treatment.

Book a consultation with our Kemsing orthopaedic shoulder surgeon

The shoulder enables a wide range of movements and is a very flexible joint. Due to this, it can be prone to injury and wear and tear. If you are experiencing shoulder pain and want to see an expert, Mr Yanni will see you. He is recognised by all major health insurance providers.

  • Frozen Shoulder: This condition, called Adhesive Capsulitis, gives rise to pain and loss of movement in the shoulder joint. It is common in adults between 40 and 60 years of age and is caused by inflammation of the ligaments holding the shoulder bones in place.
  • Shoulder Dislocation & Instability: Playing sport or repeated use of the shoulder at work may lead to a partial dislocation, called a sublaxation or a complete dislocation. This will cause pain and shoulder instability.
  • Shoulder Impingement: When the tendons in the shoulder joint become inflamed that can cause pain. This condition is also called Swimmer’s Shoulder, Tennis Shoulder, or Rotator Cuff Tendonitis.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: Tears in the rotator cuff can cause severe pain, weakness in the arm, and difficulty carrying out daily movements.
