De Quervain's Tendon Release

To treat De Quervain’s tenosynovitis surgically, the surgeon makes a small incision at the base of the thumb to release the tendon sheath. This relieves pressure on the tendons and reducing pain and swelling. Surgery for De Quervain's can be performed as an open surgery or endoscopic surgery, with endoscopic surgery generally resulting in smaller incisions and a shorter recovery time.


  • Improved hand function and range of motion
  • Reduced pain and swelling in the affected area
  • High success rate in relieving symptoms and preventing recurrence
