Several forms of arthritis and related conditions can lead to swelling and stiffness of the hand particularly in the wrist and fingers. While mild conditions lead to tingling sensation and tolerable pain, severe cases often lead to permanent stiffness and loss of movement.
If you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, osteoarthritis, gout, and other conditions that affect the hand, you would want to get immediate medical attention. However, getting diagnosis and treatment in western countries can be costly and it may mean prolonged waiting time.
Southeast Asia, which has long been recognized as one of the best regions for wide range of quality medical treatments, offers several hand surgery procedures that you can take advantage of depending on your symptoms. These include Dupuytren’s contracture fasciectomy, trigger finger release, tendon repair, Ganglion removal, knuckle (MCP joint) replacement, and Trapeziectomy (removal of the trapezium).
Aside from offering the same surgeries that are available in western countries, you can also find highly qualified hand surgeons in Southeast Asia. Most of these professionals have trained in some of the most respectable medical schools in the west. They are board certified following completion of additional training for hand surgery and have met practices requirements that qualify them to be affiliated with medical organizations recognized by western countries. These professionals are highly skilled to handle even the most traumatic and most complex fracture of the hand.
