So what are the Steps?
The first step is a careful assessment and examination followed by an x-ray at our private hand surgery clinic in london.
I think I have a finger or hand fracture. What should I do?
Hopefully not. Many hand fractures can be treated without surgery using specially made splints. If the fragments have moved into a poor position, surgery might be needed to improve the chances of a successful recovery.
If I do need surgery, does it have to be done immediately?
No, most surgery can be safely done any time in the first 2 weeks following the hand fracture while still achieving an excellent result. At our private hand clinic we advise any patients who fear they may need surgery to get in touch immediately and arrange an appointment.
