Trapeziumectomy Surgery

If you’re suffering from severe pain, discomfort, or limited hand function due to trapezium arthritis, trapeziumectomy surgery may be the solution you’ve been searching for. At Dr. Foiz Ahmed’s practice, we specialize in providing exceptional plastic and reconstructive surgery services, including trapeziumectomy.

What is Trapeziumectomy?

Trapeziumectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the trapezium bone in the wrist joint. This procedure is commonly performed to alleviate pain and restore hand function in patients with trapezium arthritis, a condition that causes inflammation and degeneration in the trapezium bone.

Benefits of Trapeziumectomy Surgery:

1. Pain Relief: Trapeziumectomy surgery effectively reduces pain associated with trapezium arthritis, allowing you to regain control over your daily activities.

2. Improved Hand Function: By removing the diseased trapezium bone, trapeziumectomy surgery can greatly enhance hand movement and grip strength.

3. Enhanced Quality of Life: Say goodbye to constant discomfort and limited hand function. Trapeziumectomy surgery can significantly improve your overall quality of life, enabling you to perform daily tasks with ease.

What to Expect During and After Trapeziumectomy Surgery:

During the surgery, which typically takes 1-2 hours under general anesthesia, our highly skilled and experienced plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Mr. Foiz Ahmed, will carefully remove the trapezium bone. Following the procedure, you may need to stay at the hospital for one night to ensure proper recovery.

Recovering from trapeziumectomy surgery usually requires approximately 2 weeks off from work and 6 weeks off from exercise. Wearing a compression garment for 6 weeks will aid in the healing process. It’s important to note that it may take up to 18 months for your hand to fully settle after the surgery.
