For many patients at the Fitzmaurice Hand Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona who have conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, De Quervain’s tendinitis, trigger finger or trigger thumb, surgery can often be performed the very same day as their consultation. This not only provides a very unique opportunity to engage in an efficient, consistent, and directed course of treatment – it also saves patients a tremendous amount of time. Whether you’re traveling across town, or across the Country, eliminating extra visits can be a welcome relief for most people.
Our staff will plan your appointment in the afternoon, when there is generally surgical schedule availability. Dr. Fitzmaurice will evaluate your particular condition to determine if surgery is indicated. If so, we are able to perform all necessary diagnostic imaging such as xray or ultrasound right here at our office.
Next, you will be given a local anesthesia, and directed to a surgery area and have the procedure performed.
Our proven process provides patients with far greater comfort, convenience and relief -all while eliminating the need for expensive tests and additional anesthesia.
At Fitzmaurice Hand Institute, we have a more effective and safe way to perform surgery, EndoTech. Dr. Fitzmaurice designed the most advanced technique available, utilizing the smallest opening possible. In fact, such a tiny incision results in a procedure that only requires local anesthesia. No extended recovery time, no fasting, no pre-operative blood work, and no clearance necessary. This saves our patients time from having to schedule at a later date, and money due to expensive lab and anesthesiologist fees.
