Hand Conditions And Injuries

When the hand structure is compromised, it affects every aspect of daily life. The inability to grip objects, ongoing pain, or damage to bones, ligaments, or muscles can make it challenging to live life to the fullest.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

When the hand structure is compromised, it affects every aspect of daily life. The inability to grip objects, ongoing pain, or damage to bones, ligaments, or muscles can make it challenging to live life to the fullest.

CMCJ (Carpometacarpal Joint Arthritis)

CMCJ refers to arthritis affecting the base of the thumb, resulting in a decreased ability to grasp and hold objects, accompanied by pain, stiffness, weakened grip, swelling, and potential visual changes in the appearance of the thumb over time.

Dupuytren’s Contracture

This condition involves the thickening of hand tissues in the fingers, thumbs, or palm, leading to the development of lumps or taut cords of hand tissue that cause persistent contraction of the hands.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

This inflammatory condition can impact the hand joints, causing pain, altered hand and finger shape, stiffness, nodules, swelling in the fingers and wrist, and mobility issues in the hands.

Trigger Finger or Thumb

This condition affects the tendons responsible for finger and thumb movement. Thickening of the tendons can result in the fingers or thumb becoming locked in a bent position, requiring pressure from the other hand to straighten. Gripping objects becomes challenging, and a clicking sensation is typically the initial symptom.

What To Expect Before, During, And After Hand Surgery 


At SVIA Los Gatos, your consultation will involve a detailed discussion of your medical history, physical examination of your hand, and possibly diagnostic tests such as X-rays or MRIs. You'll be advised on the surgical options best suited to your condition, whether it be for carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, or a hand injury. Discussing any concerns with your surgeon and understanding the potential risks and outcomes is essential.

Surgical Procedure

During the surgical procedure, you'll be under anesthesia to ensure your comfort. The specific technique, incision size, and surgical tools will vary depending on your condition and the type of surgery performed. For example, carpal tunnel release typically involves a small incision in your wrist, while joint replacement consists of removing a damaged joint and placing a prosthesis. Your SVIA surgeon's skill and state-of-the-art technology ensure precision and aim to maximize successful outcomes.


After surgery, your hand may be immobilized with a bandage or splint, and you’ll receive instructions on how to care for it. Pain management, wound care, and physiotherapy are critical to your recovery.

  • Pain Management: Prescribed medication and ice to reduce discomfort.
  • Wound Care: Instructions on keeping the surgical area clean to prevent infection.
  • Physiotherapy: Guided exercises to regain strength and flexibility over time.
