Mallet Finger question Dr Mark

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone for got to ask I have a mallet finger as a result of a broken middle finger I tried to where the splint for 3 months it did not work.

Has anyone had the surgery for a Mallet finger and did it work for the swan neck droop ? Thanks any advice is gladly appreciated!

I have done dozens of mallet finger surgeries.  Usually the splint works.  Was it on 24/7 or were your casual with its use?

Thank you for replying Dr Mark   yes I wore it for 6 weeks straight.     I haven't asked my surgeon yet if he can do the Mallet finger surgery  and take the screws out at the same time  What do you think? Or should it be done separately.  If I get it done in December how long do you think the recovery will be? Thanks seeing my Surgeon is 2 hrs away doesn't return phone calls Jeez.

If I was operating on someone's finger, and there were screws placed previously, Id take them out when I was in there just so I wouldn't have to do another operation later.
