Our hands are vulnerable to a number of different injuries that can limit their ability to function, including lacerations, fractures, burns, cysts, and masses.

There is a way for minor hand surgery procedures to be provided without the use of sedation or general anesthesia that requires a day at a hospital or surgical center. Woodlands Hand to Shoulder offers WALANT surgery, which is completed using local anesthesia only. WALANT is an acronym which stands for wide-awake local anesthesia, no tourniquet. This treatment involves the use of lidocaine with epinephrine, which helps to increase the effectiveness and extend the duration of the local anesthetic. This allows hand surgery to be completed quickly in a doctor’s office and helps to control the amount of bleeding during the procedure.
Woodlands Hand to Shoulder provides WALANT surgery for the following uses:
- Ligament Repair
- Joint Replacements in the Fingers
- Peripheral Nerve Procedures at the Wrist and Elbow
- Tendon and Soft Tissue Procedures in the Elbow, Forearm, Hand, and Wrist
The advantages of having WALANT surgery done are that patients can recover quicker without the potential side effects or complications that come from using sedation or general anesthesia. Contact Woodlands Hand to Shoulder today to learn more about our quick and convenient WALNUT surgery procedures and how they can benefit you.
