Basilar Thumb Arthritis

Basilar thumb arthritis is a form of arthritis that affects the base of the thumb, causing pain and decreased grip and function. It is a result of wear on the joint with swelling and loss of cartilage, resulting in pain and decreased strength. Nonsurgical options include oral medications, injections, splints or supports, with ultimate surgical reconstruction providing very good relief of pain and return of function. Your own tissue can be used without artificial implants
