Hand Surgery

Our hands are indispensable, performing countless tasks daily, from the most mundane to the intricately complex. Unsurprisingly, they are prone to injury and conditions that can impact our quality of life significantly. Dr Frank Conroy offers exceptional hand surgery in Dubai with over 20 years of expertise.

Common Hand Conditions Treated By Dr Frank Conroy

Dupuytren's Disease

The abnormal thickening of the fascia, a layer of tissue under the skin in the palm near the base of your fingers, is known as Dupuytren’s contracture or Dupuytren’s disease. This enlarged region could turn into a thick band or hard lump. It may eventually result in one or more fingers contracting, pulling inward or sideways toward your palm. The most often affected fingers are the little and ring fingers. It frequently affects both hands.

Nerve Entrapments

Nerve entrapments in the hand and arm, like carpal tunnel syndrome or cubital tunnel syndrome, occur when nerves are compressed at specific sites—typically the wrist for the median nerve and the elbow for the ulnar nerve. This compression can cause pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and arm, affecting daily activities and overall quality of life.

How Hand Surgery Can Help:

Hand surgery in Dubai for nerve entrapments is designed to address the root cause of compression, providing a long-term solution to alleviate symptoms and prevent further nerve damage. By surgically decompressing the nerve, patients can experience significant relief from pain, numbness, and weakness, improving hand function and quality of life. The goal of hand surgery in these cases is to relieve symptoms and restore as much function as possible, allowing patients to return to their daily activities with minimal discomfort.

Ganglion Excision

Ganglion cysts are common, benign, fluid-filled lumps that develop along the joints or tendons of the wrists or hands, though they can also appear on the feet. These cysts may cause pain and differ in size or limit movement depending on their location and size.

Ganglion excision surgery offers a permanent solution to problematic cysts that cause pain, discomfort or hinder hand function. By removing the cyst and its source, surgery can alleviate the symptoms associated with ganglion cysts and restore a full range of movement. 

Although ganglions have a risk of recurrence, surgical removal significantly reduces this risk compared to aspiration or no treatment. 

Post-surgery, patients often experience relief from pain and an improvement in hand function, enabling them to return to normal activities without the discomfort and limitations imposed by the cyst.

Arthritis Relief

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA) are common forms of arthritis affecting the joints, including those in the hands and wrists. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes pain, swelling, and potential deformity. OA, conversely, is a degenerative joint disease that eventually causes the cartilage in the joint to wear away, causing pain, stiffness, and swelling.

How hand surgery in Dubai can help:

Hand surgery in Dubai for arthritis aims to restore function, relieve pain, and enhance the quality of life. For RA, surgery may focus on removing inflamed tissue causing pain and damage. For OA, surgery often targets removing damaged bone and cartilage, replacing it with artificial materials to restore joint function. These surgical interventions can significantly relieve arthritis symptoms, allowing patients to perform daily tasks more comfortably and with less pain. While surgery cannot cure arthritis, it can significantly improve hand function and reduce the impact of the disease on a patient’s life.
