Dr. Master Suspends the Thumb for Relief

January 18, 2013

Dr. Master utilizes a special technique to treat patients with thumb arthritis.  After removing all areas of arthritis at the base of the thumb, he then suspends the thumb from the index (pointer) finger with a special implant.  This technique allows patients to start moving their thumb four weeks earlier than normal.

Cutting Edge Techniques for Your Hands

Wrist Arthroscopy

Wrist pain can be caused by a wide variety of problems.   Diagnosis often requires physical examination as well as X-rays and, in some cases, advanced imaging modalities such as MRI.  However, none of these diagnostic techniques are 100% accurate all of the time.  As such, the cause of a patient’s wrist pain may not always be perfectly clear.  Dr. Master has gained extensive clinical experience with wrist arthroscopy (looking inside the wrist joint with a small camera).  The benefit of this technique is that it allows for direct visualization of many structures inside the wrist without making large incisions.   Wrist arthroscopy can often shed light on a diagnosis which has remained unclear.  In addition, this technique can also allow for treatment of the identified problem with a minimally invasive approach (i.e. without "open" surgery).
