After being advised by some top local surgeons that an LRTI was the "way to go" once more conservative approaches began to fail (i.e. NSAIDS, therapy, Injections, etc), I wanted to learn even more about options that would address my specific need (painful thumb joint). After speaking with several sources (including the BioPro people), and meeting with Dr. Badia (virtual), my wife and I opted to fly from Virginia to Miami to execute on the plan... arrive Sunday, meet Dr. Badia and staff on Monday, have the surgery performed on Tuesday, rest on Wednesday, and meet with the doctor on Thursday for a recheck. Everything went according to plan... and we flew back to Virginia on Friday! The thumb has been recovering VERY quickly, and I'll be commencing hand therapy to improve the recovery time. Dr. Badia and his professional staff made this happen as planned, and I am on my way to pain-free recovery!
