Thumb CMC Arthroplasty

For thumb arthritis that does not respond to other treatments, Dr. Nelson utilizes the “Tightrope Suspensionplasty” technique, excising the painful bone at the base of the thumb and re-creating a comfortable sling for the thumb to rest upon. This solves the problem of bone-on-bone rubbing but does not require taking tendons from elsewhere in the arm as was previously done with other procedures.
