I believe in tailoring the treatment to the individual. We each use our hands in different ways. Care should focus on improving day-to-day activities including work, hobbies, and social activities. I also believe surgery should be considered very carefully and not performed casually. There are risks with anything we do, but it is important to keep these as low as possible.
