De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis Decompression
Also known as: De Quervain’s syndrome, De Quervain’s synovitis, De Quervain’s tenosynovitis surgery
De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis Surgery is a surgical procedure used to treat the condition known as de Quervain’s syndrome. This condition is a form of inflammation of the tendons that run along the thumb side of the wrist. The treatment involves making a small incision in the skin over the thumb side of the wrist and then releasing the inflamed tendon sheath, which allows the tendon to move more freely and reduces inflammation and pain.
