Should I Consider Arthritis Surgery?
Patients with severe thumb arthritis may also experience swelling, stiffness, and instability in the thumb joint. These symptoms can significantly affect their quality of life and may require surgical intervention.
Arthritis surgery with trapeziectomy is usually recommended when non-surgical treatments have failed to relieve the symptoms of thumb arthritis. The surgery is considered when the patient experiences:
- Persistent pain in the base of the thumb
- Loss of strength in the thumb
- Difficulty performing daily activities such as opening jars, turning keys, or writing
- Significant loss of range of motion in the thumb
