- Joint replacement, also called arthroplasty, in people with severe arthritis of the hand
- Nerve repair
- Surgical drainage to remove a collection of pus if there is an abscess in the hand
- Tendon repair
If you experience pain, numbness or other problems with your hand, it’s important you seek help soon.
