Thumb arthritis, sometimes known as “basal joint arthritis” or “arthritis base of the thumb,” is a condition that is genetic and tends to come with age. Patients with thumb arthritis find it difficult to perform daily tasks such as opening a jar or turning a doorknob. The pain and swelling is found at the base of the thumb.

Watch this two-minute video to see how a quick surgery can relieve thumb arthritis symptoms if splints and injections do not work for you.

    Why do you not address the newer TESS surgical procedure. Less invasive, fewer complications and quicker recovery. How do I find a surgeon in Las Vegas, NV who performs the TESS surgical technique?
