Carpal tunnel syndrome treatment starting from £1,656

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common joint pain condition caused by increased pressure on your median nerve. It can result in numb or aching hands, or difficulty gripping with your thumb. There are several treatment options available for this, including wearing a wrist support device and performing specialist physiotherapy exercises assigned by your Physiotherapist. 

At BMI Bath Clinic, we also offer treatment in the form of surgery to stop nerve compression induced by carpal tunnel syndrome, which (in turn), helps alleviate your symptoms. Your Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon will make a small incision in the palm of your hand. They will then cut the tight ligament (called the flexor retinaculum) that forms the roof of the carpal tunnel. This stops the nerve being compressed, reducing your pain and improving your mobility. 

Hand surgery for Duputyren’s disease starting from £1,900*

Duputyren’s disease is a joint condition in which one or more of your fingers bend in towards your palm. This is due to the development of fibrous connective tissue between the tendons in your finger. The condition causes tightness and discomfort. Hand surgery for Duputyren’s disease involves straightening your bent finger or fingers so that the condition no longer interferes with your everyday life. 

Hand surgery for Duputyren’s disease cannot cure the disease (your fingers might contract again in the future), but it can significantly improve your symptoms, allowing your hand to function as usual again. 

At BMI Bath Clinic, we offer hand surgery for Duputyren’s disease starting from £1,900* 

Trigger finger treatment starting from £2,605*

Trigger finger is a condition that affects one or more of the tendons in your hand. This makes it difficult to bend your affected finger or thumb. Trigger finger can also cause swelling and inflammation, making it difficult to move your affected finger and perform regular everyday activities. 

Fortunately, effective trigger finger treatment is available to help restore your finger function. Trigger finger treatment can involve following specialist exercises set by your Physiotherapist. We also offer surgery for those suffering with debilitating trigger finger symptoms. 

During trigger finger surgery, your Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon will cut through the affected section of your tendon sheath, so that your tendon can move freely again.  

It is rare for trigger finger to return after trigger finger surgery.

There are many reasons why you might require hand and wrist treatment. 

Often, we take the function of our hands and wrists for granted, because we forget how important they are in our performance of simple everyday activities, such as driving, shopping and eating.

Our hands allow us to touch, hold and grasp objects. Our wrists facilitate the movement of our hands, acting as a hinge joint that can flex, extend and move from one side to the next.

We can experience hand and wrist pain for many reasons. Sometimes, this pain is temporary, caused by repetitive strain due to the fulfillment of everyday activities. It can be treated with traditional pain relief and rest. In other instances, hand and wrist pain can be caused by joint pain conditions or traumatic injury. The reasons why you might need hand and wrist treatment include:

Osteoarthritis: This type of arthritis causes chronic pain and stiffness, which (in turn) has a negative impact on your overall mobility and function. This is the most common type of arthritis in the UK, occurring when the smooth cartilage which cushions your joints becomes worn down over time – most commonly as you age

Rheumatoid arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) currently affects more than 400,000 people in the UK. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory joint condition caused by an autoimmune process, which occurs when your body mistakenly attacks its healthy cells. This often causes severe pain, swelling, inflammation and limited mobility.

Trauma: A broken finger, broken wrist, or crushing injury are all forms of hand trauma that can be caused by an impact injury, such as a sudden fall or accident when playing sport.

Trigger finger: As described previously, trigger finger is a condition that affects one or more of the tendons in your hand, making it difficult to bend your affected finger or thumb. The condition can be understandably frustrating and uncomfortable to manage.

There are many other conditions that can result in hand and wrist pain.


You can experience many different hand and wrist symptoms induced by joint conditions or injuries. These symptoms include:

  • Swelling;

  • Pain;

  • Tenderness;

  • Inflammation;

  • Stiffness;

  • Deformity, and

  • Reduced mobility.


These symptoms and conditions can all have aimpact on your everyday life, preventing you from carrying out the everyday activities required to function, as well as the hobbies and aspects of life that you love.

Fortunately, there are many treatment options available to help you manage your pain and get back to feeling like you.
