Hi, It is not common to treat a mallet finger surgically if bone fragments or fractures are not present. Surgical treatment of the damaged tendon usually requires a tendon graft — tendon tissue that is taken (harvested) from another part of your body — or even fusing the joint straight. Consevatively if possible then you can use mallate finger splint also ,there are many types of mallate finger splint.. Thank you.
