Have you been experiencing any hand pain while writing, opening jars, or turning door handles? This can be a sign of a very common form of arthritis known as basilar joint arthritis.
Basilar joint arthritis occurs in the joint in your hand used to stabilize the base of the thumb. When the surface of this joint deteriorates, it can lead to chronic pain and stiffness in your hands. If this condition is left untreated, it can severely hinder your ability to perform basic functions with your hand.
At the Hand & Plastic Surgery Center of Katy, we can provide highly effective treatments for your basilar joint arthritis that will help to manage and alleviate pain and retain function in your hands. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
