The phenomenon of Thumb arthritis
There are many factors both genetic and environmental that contribute to the disease process. In many cases patients may have a history of repetitive activity that involves working with their hands. Loss of cartilage and bone spurs are hallmarks of thumb arthritis. Often overlooked, the thumb joint microenvironment becomes “catabolic” meaning that it contains an increased level of destructive enzymes that destroy the thumb joint over time.
Downfalls of thumb joint surgery
Thumb joint surgery is an invasive procedure in which surgeons typically attach a separate tendon into the thumb joint or fuse the joint. It is not uncommon for the surgery to yield limited positive improvements. Complicating factors include prolonged downtime, persistent pain, decreased thumb motion.
A Bio-Restorative Stem Cell procedure for thumb arthritis
A Bio-Restorative Stem Cell procedure for those with thumb joint arthritis is an ultra-minimally invasive same-day injection procedure designed to alleviate pain, improve function, and slow thumb joint degeneration with an aim at joint preservation. In addition to being less invasive than surgery, the procedure conveys less risk of complications and in many cases less downtime. Though it is not covered by insurance carriers, out of pocket costs for this procedure are often comparable to thumb surgery when considering copayments and loss productivity associated with surgery. Most importantly, this joint preserving procedure allows you to keep your own hip joint rather than cut it out and replace it with metal. In other words, the Stem Cells from your own body harness your own body’s healing capability to naturally restore, reduce pain and get you back to doing the things you love.
