Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to our frequently asked questions

Patients can typically have the hand surgery procedures performed and go home the same day, typically done in a two-hour window.

Patients can have the procedure under local anaesthetic or injections to numb the entire arm also called arm blocks.  

The relevant area of the hand is treated and the skin is closed with non-dissolving stitches and a dressing to protect the wound and hand.

The group most likely to benefit from the one day hand surgery service are those who have conditions affecting the hand including:

  • Nerve pain (carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Clicking digits with lumps on the hand or painful movements (Trigger finger, Flexor sheath ganglions, De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis)
  • Swellings on the hand (Ganglion excision, Dupuytren’s contracture/nodules)
  • Digits held in a bent position (Dupuytren’s contracture/nodules)

Before attending, clients fill out the information about their medical history to help organise relevant tests including COVID PCR. 

In the clinic, our UK-trained hand surgery specialist surgeons make a full assessment of the client’s condition.

This includes any relevant history, including reasons for surgery and a thorough examination which may include the hands, arms and neck.

Part of this process is explaining to the client what can be done, why, and what to expect, based on each clients’ anatomy and suitability for surgery.

The clients will be tested by a neurophysiologist if needed, checked for suitability for surgery by a member of the anaesthetic team and prepared for safety checking for surgery.

Once the surgery is complete, the patients are met by the physiotherapists with a specialist interest in hand operations.  

The client is given advice for what to expect after surgery, and what exercises to do.

Patients are also seen 10 days following surgery where stitches are taken out by the same physiotherapist and the hand movement assessed.  

If any issues occur, the physiotherapists are available to deal with queries. Those who may need further support are offered the option to book further sessions with the physiotherapists.

Depending on the initial problem, patients may see an immediate improvement, especially with lumps and bumps. 

Those with nerve and joint problems typically need a number of weeks as swelling increases for the first 48 hours and then gradually settles down.

A common theme in NHS or private care is the number of occasions patients have to visit the hospital in order to be seen, assessed, tested, obtain the results of the test, have surgery, and then follow up and physiotherapy. 

Each part typically needs one visit each. The conditions that can be treated in the one-day hand surgery service can typically be treated on the NHS. 

However, due to COVID, non-cancer conditions are being treated as lower priority resulting in waiting times.
