Thumb Base Replacement

Mr Auyeung has now reviewed the first three thumb base replacements that he did last year. These patients are more than 12 months after their initial procedure. All report satisfaction with the operation. They all often forget that they had an operation in the thumb as it functions more or less normally.

The results are in line with other patients that had a thumb base replacements. Most patients report that they feel their thumb moves in a normal manner and have pain relief. Patients who are not suitable for a thumb base replacements still report a good outcome, particularly pain relief, with the standard trapeziectomy and suspensionplasty procedure, but feel the thumb does not move in a natural manner.

Mr Auyeung is planning to perform more of these in suitable patients.
