Welcome to the PATIENT+ decision aid

How can this decision aid help you?

De Quervain tendinopathy goes away with time, but it sometimes takes a year or more. This decision aid explains the advantages and disadvantages of cortisone injection and surgery compared to just waiting it out. We hope this helps you decide what’s best for you.

You can go over it again and again. You can print the results. Discuss the options with your doctors, family, and friends until you are sure what you want to do.
