It is treated by releasing the constriction by minimal access surgery.

Microsurgery (for finger deformities)
Replantation of a single finger or multiple fingers are often done through surgical procedure. In case of multiple finger amputation, one or more fingers can be replanted in a manner that it will allow functioning of the hand. Replantation surgery is followed by rehabilitative physiotherapy for hand.
