Loss of finger movement in left hand

My wife has been to 3 hand specialists, 2 EMGs, x ray, MRI and nerve entrapment surgery. She has loss movement in her index finger, middle finger and the ring finger.  It’s been 1yr+ and continues to get worse.  The EMG says no chance of nerve recovery.  But not sure why it is getting worse and no one can identify a root cause.  No sudden injury or anything.  Should she see a different specialists outside a hand one? Anyone have ideas?

Yep, I'd go to an orthopedic doc as well.  And an neurologist.  Hand specialists seem like they'd know but I'd get different specialties to give you input.  They say nerve damage.  https://www.healthline.com/health/ulnar-nerve-dysfunction#treatment  This talks about a nerve in the hand called the ulnar nerve.  Is that what they are referring to?  Don't forget that physical therapy can be very helpful as well as occupational therapy to work around any limitations.  They do have some treatment options for ulnar nerve dysfunction.
