Dr Dilip Gahankari has decades of experience performing emergency and elective hand surgery on the Gold Coast and around the world. He has been the surgeon of choice for many GPs in the treatment of traumatic hand injuries, including Trigger Finger, Dupuytren’s Contracture and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
This is the most common type of benign tumour affecting hand function. It is a myxomatous (gel-like) degeneration of joints (ligamentous capsule) and tendon sheath. They initially present as painless lumps, usually on the back of the wrist and finger joints and occasionally on the front. Eventually, ganglions interfere with hand movement and become painful with hand use. This form of hand surgery requires surgical precision.
