treatment flexor tendon laceration

Current best practices for flexor tendon repair include technical advances as well as novel strategies postoperatively to decrease the risk of adhesions, which can limit return of full digital motion.

Tendon repair is ideally performed within 1 week of injury. A 4 stranded repair is performed to allow enough strength to allow an "early place & hold" therapy regimen. Your postoperative outcome will, in large part, begin with the surgical repair BUT you must also be committed to working closely with our therapists to realize the most optimal outcome in terms of range of motion.
