Thumb joint replacement is usually only considered if nonsurgical arthritis treatment options have failed to ease pain and improve joint function. In this procedure, the arthritic, damaged surfaces of the carpometacarpal (CMC) joint are removed and replaced with an artificial prosthesis to allow for more comfortable movement.
As a patient at ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities, your thumb joint pain will be carefully evaluated by one of our doctors, who will first provide you with options to consider other than surgery. However, in the event that joint replacement is the appropriate option, rest assured our experienced surgeons are trained in the latest surgical techniques to minimize incisions, reduce post-operative downtime, and provide excellent results. In addition, our skilled physical therapists provide specialized hand physical rehabilitation.
