I am an x-ray tech and my job has a lot of repetitive motions. It’s kind of a blue collar AND white collar job because I am constantly in motion, moving equipment around, positioning patients and, also, using a computer keyboard and mouse. For over a year, my index finger was either locking up or was very sore after minimal exertion at work. I did my research comparing recovery time of a traditional open surgery vs the trigger tome procedure. I chose the trigger tome option, mainly, because I could not afford to take any time off work. Another advantage is that he incision is so small. I only had a band aid over the incision site for several days after the surgery. This was important for work, because I have to wash my hands between each x-ray patient.
Dr. Stuffmann and his staff did a great job. He is one of the very few doctors in California that perform the trigger tome procedure. The procedure is affordable, only takes a few minutes and is highly effective.
