Fingertip Injuries Treatment

Treatment for Fingertip Injuries from
Hand Specialists in the Quad Cities

Specialized treatment for fingertip injuries is available at the ORA Orthopedics Hand Center of Excellence. Since 1963, our staff has provided a full spectrum of musculoskeletal care to families in Moline, IL, Davenport, IA, Bettendorf, IA, and other communities in the Quad Cities. If you have injured one or more of your fingers, we encourage you to consult with a specialist on our team and find the relief you deserve.

The fingers feature a complex composition of tiny bones, muscles, tendons and nerve endings. Unfortunately, fingertip injuries are quite common since this part of the finger is often the last to escape harm’s way. Failure to seek prompt treatment for fingertip injuries can potentially result in decreased hand function, disability or even permanent deformity.

ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities provides evaluation, diagnostics and individualized care for a variety of fingertip injuries, such as:

  • Mallet finger
  • Jersey finger (flexor digitorum profundus avulsion)
  • Subungual hematoma
  • Tuft fractures (distal phalanx fractures)
  • Nail bed lacerations
  • Deep finger cuts and lacerations
  • Distal interphalangeal joint dislocation
  • Other fingertip injuries

In the event that your finger injury involves uncontrolled bleeding, call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room.

Your best course of fingertip injury treatment will depend on the specific type of injury and what structures it is affecting. At ORA Orthopedics, our doctors offer the latest advances in both surgical and nonsurgical therapies. Our services also include specialized hand physical therapy to accommodate the unique anatomy and functional demands of the hands and fingers.

Contact ORA Orthopedics today to schedule an appointment with a specialist on our team, who will be able to outline our various treatment options for fingertip injuries. We are proud to serve adults and children throughout the Quad Cities.
