dequervainsAlso known as DeQuervain’s Stenosing Tenosynovitis, tendonitis of the wrist is an irritation and swelling of the wrist tunnel that the tendons of the thumb pass through on the way into the hand. The most common symptoms of DeQuervain’s are a pain over the tunnel in the wrist when pinching, grasping or stretching the wrist towards the small finger. Sometimes a swelling can be felt over this inflamed tunnel. More common in women, aged 30-50, this condition may be associated with repetitive stress, pregnancy or rheumatoid arthritis.

At our office in Monmouth County we offer both nonoperative and operative treatment for this common problem. Nonoperative therapy includes splinting and steroid injection. When indicated, surgical release of the inflamed tendons can be a definitive cure for the pain.

This is an example of DeQuervain’s procedure on one of our patients.
