If you have thumb arthritis, you know how painful and debilitating this condition can be. Thumb arthritis can affect your ability to write, pick up objects, or turn a doorknob. Luckily, advancements in medical technology provide effective treatment options for arthritis of the thumb, so you can find the relief you deserve from this condition.
Dr. Henry Backe, our highly-experienced, certified hand and wrist arthritis specialist performs a procedure called Stablyx arthroplasty, designed to reduce pain and restore function in your thumb. During this minimally-invasive procedure, a constructed implant that closely mirrors the anatomy of your thumb will replace the damaged side of your thumb joint. This surgery is typically an outpatient procedure that includes benefits such as quicker recovery time and maintained physical thumb structure. Dr. Henry Backe will work alongside you, if surgery is deemed a necessary option, and provide rehabilitative advice to ensure a healthy and quick recovery.
