Orthopedics is one of South Lake Hospital's stand-out specialties. From the highly-trained group of orthopedic surgeons servicing South Lake County to our expertise in rehabilitation, we serve a wide variety of orthopedic needs from common injuries to sports injuries.

Overview

The preferred treatment may be to straighten your finger and apply a splint to keep your tendon in place while it heals. But you may need surgery if your tendon is severed or a bone fragment is displaced, or if splinting doesn’t improve your condition. Your doctor may also develop a rehabilitation plan that teaches you stretching exercises to improve the strength and flexibility in your finger.
