A Mallet finger injury can happen from something sharp hitting the end of your finger, or it could happen from a simple activity like making the bed or folding socks. If the tip of your finger is drooping after an injury, see a hand surgeon right away. Time is of the essence with this injury.

To meet with one of our specialists, contact BoulderCentre for Orthopedics at 303.449.2730 and ask for Dr. Daniel Master or Dr. David Conyers.
