All patients are seen by Physiotherapists for an appropriate splint and exercise regime. Patients are seen at the weekly intervals to monitor their progress. Patients are expected to follow the instructions for wound cleaning and exercise regime sincerely. A painful, stiff, and swollen finger can jeopardize the outcome following a successful surgery. Patients are encouraged to move their fingers with painkiller medication to reduce the swelling as per the exercise protocols.
