A considerable number of patients apply to the emergency departments with rings, made of different alloys and in different shapes, stuck on their fingers. Sticking is a condition that must be removed as soon as possible because it may cause a serious problem that can lead up to the necrosis in the finger. Many methods have been described in the literature for removing the stuck rings. In this report, we presented a case where a ring made of a thick and hard metal alloy that causes sticking and infection in the finger, was removed with a diamond tip high-speed motor used In spinal surgery unlike conventional methods, and the patient was treated without any sequel.
