Thumb Arthroplasty, or Joint Replacement

Thumb Surgery Specialists in Florida

According to studies, the thumb is the second-most likely joint to have arthritis of the hand. However, the unique nature and utility of thumbs makes thumb arthritis particularly debilitating. When we have a debilitating thumb joint, our hands can accomplish significantly less.

For older patients who want to restore the use of their hands, thumb arthroplasty may be a perfect solution. Thumb arthroplasty is like other joint replacement surgeries—a new joint implant is surgically implanted into the hand of the patient. It can restore movement, strength, and capability to your hands.
