Flexor Tendons Repair

A damaged or severed flexor tendon in the hand or finger is treated surgically with a flexor tendon repair. The fingers and thumb can be bent or flexed thanks to the flexor tendons. The damaged tendon may make it difficult or impossible to fully flex the affected digit.

What to expect at the time of your surgery:

The procedure is frequently carried out under local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort throughout the process. Over the location of the damaged tendon, a tiny incision is created. The precise tendon implicated and the type of injury determine where and how long the incision will be. The surgeon’s meticulous dissection of the tissues exposes the flexor tendon’s injured or severed ends. There are several methods for reattaching and repairing the damaged ends of the tendon. The particular procedure chosen is determined by the location and severity of the tendon injury as well as the surgeon’s personal preferences. Strong sutures may be used to sew the tendon ends together during the repair process, or other techniques such as the use of implants or specialised devices may be required.

Flexor Tendons Repair Recovery:

Following the repair, the tendon requires care and healing time. A protective splint or cast is applied to immobilise the finger or hand and maintain the restored tendon’s correct alignment. Depending on the precise repair, the surgeon’s prescription, and the type of immobilisation employed, the length of immobilisation will vary. Although recovery times might differ, it often takes several months to recover fully. You will progressively restore strength and range of motion throughout this time through therapy. It’s crucial to adhere to your surgeon’s instructions and attend all prescribed follow-up appointments.
