Thumbs up on this implant!


BioPro is a technologically superior implant design

When orthopedic surgeon Dr. Alejandro Badia was asked why he found BioPro a technologically superior implant design and why he started using this implant exclusively several years ago, the internationally renowned hand and upper-limb surgeon responded:

Rather than standard one-piece CMC implant designs, the BioPro® Modular Thumb Implant offers a modular, two-piece design to better match patient’s anatomy.

Alejandro Badia, M.D., F.A.C.S., is one of the few American surgeons who embrace the concept of join replacement for the thumb.

The basal joint in osteoarthritis is at the base of the thumb. It’s the second most common place for disabling arthritis in the hand. It’s not only painful, but sags grip strength; you can’t event turn a car key. Dr. Badia, who specializes in disorders and injuries of the hand, wrist and upper limbs, later added,

As the population ages and continues to be increasingly active, more effective approaches will be necessary to treat this debilitating osteoarthritic condition.

Dr. Badia, founder of the Badia Hand to Shoulder Center in Doral, Florida, and of OrthoNOW, a network of orthopedic urgent care centers in the U.S., continues to educate both patients and other physicians about alternatives available for better treatments.
