CMC Arthroplasty for Basal Joint Arthritis
With advanced basal joint arthritis treatment, pain relief is in reach.
The basal joint or carpometacarpal joint (CMC) is located at the base of the thumb. Because it is susceptible to wear and tear from normal use, arthritis can develop causing significant pain, weakness and loss of movement.
CMC arthroplasty for basal joint arthritis is an effective treatment option when non-invasive treatments, such as therapy, splinting, and anti-inflammatory medications, fail to alleviate pain and swelling.
