Basal Joint Thumb Arthroplasty

Basal Joint Arthroplasty in Wayne, Paramus, and Parsippany NJ

A procedure designed to alleviate thumb pain while preserving mobility and function of the thumb.

Surgery usually involves removing a small carpal bone called the trapezium that sits at the base of your thumb and is the source of pain in basal joint arthritis. Removal of this bone does not alter the mobility or function of the thumb but does alleviate your pain. Once that bone is removed, the thumb metacarpal will be suspended in a variety of ways that may involve a tendon transfer, pinning or a tight rope suspension. All of these are appropriate options, although some may allow for earlier motion than others. Physical therapy will be a large part of your rehabilitation process regardless of the specific type of surgery done.
