The wide awake local anesthetic no tourniquet [WALANT] technique for a trigger finger release was an excellent way to complete the surgery. The local anesthetic injection was less painful than corticosteroid injections that I have had in the past. Due to the dressing that is placed on the incision after surgery, I would suggest patients wear slip on shoes and elastic waist band shorts/pants the day of the procedure. Overall, I had a very positive experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Clark. I am very happy with the results of my WALANT trigger finger release!
