Trigger Finger

Wound Care

  • The incision for Trigger Finger is fairly small. It is usually placed near the distal palmar crease.
  • Your finger will be placed in a bulky dressing (bandage) and a splint after surgery. The splint helps to protect the incision site, lessen the swelling and improve the finger extension after surgery.
  • Two days after surgery, you may remove the dressing, yellow gauze, and splint from your incision. Put a small bandage over your sutures to keep them from getting caught on your clothes or other fabrics.
  • Do not put any ointment or lotion on your wound.
