First Thumb Base Joint Replacement Completed

Mr. Auyeung has carried out the first trapeziometacarpal joint replacement at University Hospital of North Durham.  The procedure went well. The thumb had a near full range of motion at the end of the procedure.  

Mr. Auyeung used a dual mobility design replacement.  This affords a higher degree of stability of the replacement with no obvious signs of any likely dislocation in normal day to day use of the hand.
