Thu, Jan 17 5:22pm · Bone on bone thumbs in Bones, Joints & Muscles

rlbry, thank you for saying what I needed to hear. Than you for your response. A celebrated Chicago hand surgeon, responding to my x-rays advised that while beyond, braces, salves, heat and cold, and prosthetic devices, surgery was my only option but not necessarily a great one. How long did you spend recovering? And why the two different methods? Of course, I want to find a surgeon who gets it right most of the time.

I have had bone-on-bone in both thumbs with multiple steroid shots for the past three years,but the shots no longer work. Reports on surgical outcomes are varied, even with patients who have found the “best” surgeons. Are their conditions that lead to a better result? A better surgeon? Better OTs? Younger patients? Still Wondering.
