Patient refused traditional LRTI Procedure in GA & found a solution for basal joint arthritis in FL

Exploring Options for Thumb Basal Joint Osteoarthritis Treatment

Jun 1st, 2022

Doctors in Atlanta advised this patient that his only option is to get a traditional procedure termed “LRTI” as the solution for his thumb basal joint osteoarthritis. 

The patient was not satisfied with this option being that it removes the trapezium and suspends the metacarpal using tendons (picture in video). 

He decided to do more research and discovered he DID have other options. The BioPro modular thumb implant was designed to replace the joint, not remove it, providing patients with pain relief and faster recovery.
