Fingertip Injuries & Amputations
Hand & Wrist Broken Bones & Injuries
Fingertip injuries can take many forms – they can come from a sharp cut, a crushing or tearing injury, or (less commonly) by jarring the finger. Fingertip amputations can come from a sharp cut or a strong injury, such as by mishandling power tools or slamming your finger in a car door.
The type of treatment needed will be decided on by your doctor. Your injury may heal on its own with conservative treatments, or may need surgery to mend the damage or attach an amputated part. It’s important to see a doctor as soon as possible after the injury occurs to ensure the best possible results for your recovery.
