Hand Surgery Alternative for Arthritis and Injury
Thumb arthritis (or basal joint arthritis) can appear early in life. Because of the constant swiveling and pivoting motions of the basal joint, the joint at the base of the thumb, or thumb CMC (carpometacarpal) joint tends to wear out easily. Basal joint arthritis is also common in people who have osteoarthritis.
One way to treat this condition is with total joint reconstruction surgery. While surgery may improve the condition for some, this is not the case for all. New problems in the thumb joint may redevelop over time, causing such symptoms as numbness or tenderness. The Regenexx family of surgical alternative treatments utilize your own stem cells to help repair damaged areas that are causing pain.
