My broken finger didn’t heal right. Can it be fixed?

“My ring finger on the right hand is basically bent and will not stay straight. I believe it is from an injury years ago that was not treated. The knuckle is much bigger than the other ring finger and I have been having some pain in the knuckle/inside of the finger.

“I have noticed more recently when I grip something or point that the little finger and middle finger over lap the ring finger. Since the original injury was so long ago is this just a situation I need to live with or are there ways to correct this deformity?”

Dr. Foreman Says:

Most likely there is a way to improve the finger function. I would recommend an appointment with an orthopedic hand surgeon for an evaluation and x-rays followed by a discussion of treatment options.
