I’ve had very little almost no pain” – Patient just 48 hrs post basal joint hemiarthroplasty.
Basal joint arthritis affects the part of the thumb that’s right next to your wrist. Cartilage wears away from the ends of the bones that form the joint at the base of the thumb.
Prior to this procedure the patient had tried conservative treatment including injections and described his pain as severe.
Stay tuned & we will share a second case with very similar results ! #thumbpain #thumbsurgery #arthritis #ot #thumb #orthopedics #handsurgery
