Hand & Wrist Conditions Treated In Longfield

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: This is not a single condition but a collection of symptoms caused by other underlying conditions that cause swelling inside the narrow carpal tunnel.
  • Wrist Arthritis/Base of Thumb Arthritis: Any joint in the hand or wrist can be affected by arthritis, but it is most commonly seen in the wrist and at the base of the thumb. It may result in pain and tenderness and a reduced range of movement.
  • Trigger Finger/Trigger Thumb: This condition causes finger locking or catching. When the finger snaps into place, the sensation is similar to pulling a trigger.
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: This is a slow-developing disorder, sometimes known as Viking’s Disease, that affects the layer of tissue underneath the palm, called the palmar fascia. This becomes thicker and tighter, eventually creating a thick cord that pulls the fingers inwards.
  • Tendonitis: When tendons become swollen and inflamed, this can lead to pain and tenderness.
  • RSI: Repetitive strain injuries (RSI) are common in the hand and wrist and result in pain and inflammation.

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 Yanni - Longfield elbow consultant

“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.”
