De Quervain’s

De Quervain’s

Are golf and gardening becoming too painful for your hands?

De Quervain’s tenosynovitis affects the tendons on the thumb side of your wrist and causes pain when you use your hands for repetitive tasks. The pain is often manifested during gripping and the turning of the wrist.

Medication and therapy can help relieve the pain of De Quervain’s, but often surgery is the best option for long-term continued use. The surgeons at Meridian Plastic Surgery can reduce the swelling and restore pain-free movement to your hands.

I was greeted cordially and treated with upmost respect. The wait was less than 15 minutes, and I was really surprised since the waiting room was full. My visit was on Monday and on Tuesday I received the call with the good biopsy report. I will definitely not hesitate to use Dr. Thornton should the need arise in the future.
