Top Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia Orthopedic Surgeons Specializing in Finger Dislocation
This common injury occurs when a bone in the finger is forced out of its normal position in the joint. Any of the bones of the finger can become dislocated, but most dislocations occur at the middle joint. The bone may be displaced to the side, top, or bottom of the involved joint. Adjacent tissues that stabilize the joint can often be severely injured by a joint dislocation.
