Percutaneous pulley release

Benson Radiology offers ultrasound guided percutaneous pulley release.

This procedure treats 'trigger finger' - a condition where the finger gets stuck in a flexed position on the palm.

The procedure is an alternative to open surgery and is well tolerated by patients. It uses ultrasound guidance to cut the band supporting the tendon of the finger.
