Hand Surgery Profile Image

Hand Surgery

Hand surgery deals with both surgical and non-surgical treatment of conditions and problems that may take place in the hand or upper extremity, including injury and infection.

Overview

Hand surgeons perform a wide variety of operations such as fracture repairs, releases, transfer and repairs of tendons and reconstruction of injuries, rheumatoid deformities and congenital defects.

They also perform microsurgical reattachment of amputated digits and limbs, microsurgical reconstruction of soft tissues and bone, nerve reconstruction, and surgery to improve function in paralysed upper limbs. 

This S'porean Hand Surgeon Shares Tips On What To Do With An Injured Wrist That Is Not Healing

Hand and wrist injuries commonly occur during accidental falls. When you fall forward, your natural response is to put your hands out in front of you to catch yourself.

DxD reader posted a question regarding a wrist injury she had sustained during a trip to Taiwan. The area around her wrist began to swell up and bruise. An X-Ray showed no fracture which led her doctor to believe it was a ligament or tendon injury.

She felt her wrist wasn't recovering well and wanted to know what she could do about it. Dr Jonathan Lee, an established surgeon in Singapore who specialises in hand surgery, responded to the inquiry. Here's what he had to share.

Dear Analisse, Thank you for the email. From the picture, this does look like a digital myxoid cyst. This usually occurs over the distal finger joints and may be associated with underlying osteoarthritis. The cyst may have a connection with the underlying joint. Some simple tr...

Hi Moi, Yes, what Dr Dinesh said holds true. I think if you have persistent wrist pain despite a “normal” X-ray, we have to consider other potential problems. 1. Sometime very small minute cracks/ microfractures may not be seen on a standard X-ray. It may be neces...

Dear Sarah Numbness in the hand is a common problem and there can be various causes for this, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, thyroid function abnormalities or even nerve irritation from the neck. If you are concerned about a stroke, the common symptoms are difficulty with spe...

Dear Jingwen Thank you for your question - it is certainly a common problem that I see in the clinical setting, particularly amongst younger patients. Broadly speaking, pain in the wrist can be from a structural or functional issue. When I mean " structural" , this can be from the bones, joi...

Dear Bluvelvet, From the photo, there is no obvious lump seen. This lump is like to be located deeper beneath the skin. Some possibilities include an underlying cyst, swelling of the tendon sheath, or ganglion. It is advisable for you to see your doctor for a closer examinat...

Dear Shirleen This is a common problem particularly in younger patients and we have had a number come into the Sports Clinic with these symptoms. Often it is not due to a tendon or muscle issue but comes from a scapulo-thoracic bursa . This is a potential space that sits betwe...

Dear MentaikoSalmon, Given your short account of the problem, it would appear that your stiffness is caused by a tendon inflammation (tenosynovitis) - swelling and irritation of the flexor tendons that bend the fingers. At one end of the spectrum (in the acute or active phases) t...

Hi Shirleen, I'm sorry to hear that you are still symptomatic after your surgery. It is certainly unusual for you to have symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome in both hands at the same time. As you are already seeing both a neurologist and a hand surgeon, I am sure a variety...

Hi Gloop, thank you for your question. Although arthritis might be a cause of your symptoms, there are other conditions that can account for your symptoms such as a simple sprain of the joints of the fingers (from your exercise, from using computers etc). Furthermore, there are many...
