Hand surgery: tendon and connective tissue disorders, tumors

Hand surgery covers the entire arm in the soft tissue area, as the muscles and tendons, nerves and blood vessels that lead to the hand run here. The finely balanced interaction of the bones and joints is transmitted by the muscles, tendons, ligament structures and connective tissue. Accordingly, diseases of the tendons and connective tissue can disturb the balance of the hand and thus its function and require specialized treatment.
Rheumatological diseases also play a special role. These can attack joint cartilage and bone, but also tendons and ligament structures, via inflammation of the joint skin and the tendon gliding tissue (synovialitis) and lead to characteristic changes and loss of function in the hand. In addition to the optimal drug therapy, a specialist's advice is required at an early stage in the case of persistent joint complaints. The range of services offered by Hand Surgery Saarbrücken includes:

Treatment of inflammation of tendons and tendon gliding tissues

Diseases of the tendons can cause pain as well as functional limitations. Due to the narrow spatial location of vessels, tendons and nerves, specialized treatment is recommended. The range of services offered by CenterPlast includes:

  • Treatment of snap fingers
  • Treatment of tendovaginitis of all kinds, especially tendovaginitis stenosans de Quervain

Treatment of overlegs (Ganglia)

Bagging of the joint capsule or the tendon sheaths is colloquially referred to as overbone or technically as ganglion. In addition to the aesthetically disturbing bulging out, this can also lead to pain or movement restrictions. The team at CenterPlast offers the following surgical techniques:

  • Classic surgery

Treatment of Dupuytren's disease

Dupuytren's disease is the nodular alteration of the connective tissue of the palm. As the disease progresses, this can lead to the brickwork of tendons, nerves and vessels or even to the stretching inhibition of the affected fingers. Due to the anatomical complexity, surgical removal using magnifying glasses by an experienced specialist is necessary. CenterPlast offers:  

  • Strand cutting
  • Classic surgery
  • Removal of mostly benign tumors of the bone, fat or connective tissue, blood vessels or skin

Tumours on the hand are usually benign and originate from fatty, connective or vascular tissue. Nevertheless, they should be removed by an experienced specialist and examined for fine tissue. The range of services offered by CenterPlast includes:

  • Professional removal
  • Examination of fine tissue
