Flexor Tendon Repair

Flexor Tendon Repair in Wayne, Paramus, and Parsippany NJ

Surgical repair of a ruptured flexor tendon is commonly required to allow for regained flexion of the finger.

Complete flexor tendon ruptures or lacerations will require surgical repair to regain function of the affected finger. It is important that the repair is done in a timely manner and as close to the incident as possible to prevent the need for a more complex surgery. This surgery can be done as a same-day procedure in an ambulatory surgical center. After the tendon is repaired, the hand is splinted in a bent position to immobilize the fingers and keep tension off of the newly repaired tendon. Closely following the instructions of your surgeon and therapist is crucial during this post-operative phase, because the tendon must be rehabilitated properly in order to regain motion and not compromise the repair. Once adequate time is spent resting and healing the repair, your surgeon will progress you to formal physical therapy which is done in a gradual manner. Each individual patient will have a rehab protocol that is tailored specifically to their ability and needs.
