Trigger Thumb

What kind of doctor would I need to threat trigger thumb? An orthopedist or a hand surgeon. Those are my two choice in my medical plan. My right thumb is popping and I know it's trigger thumb. It just started a few days ago. Thanks,

Re: Trigger Thumb

I think that either one would work. I have the same problem and an orthopedic person is going to treat mine. He already did the other thumb. The surgery is a breeze. A general surgeon could also probably do it.
