Treatment is always surgical (repair of the avulsed FDP tendon). The finger is kept in a splint for 6 weeks and then exercises can begin. However forceful activities such as sports are avoided for at least 3 months following the operation. Dr. Ioannis Karnezis MD,FRCS, Orthopaedic Surgeon, Athens, Greece
