Rheumatoid arthritis patient needs joint and ligament reconstruction: Phyllis Wheelan’s Story
Hand surgery is arguably the most intricate and complex of procedures in the general field of orthopedics, involving bone, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, blood vessels and the relationship between them. Any patient can speak to the extraordinary sensitivity of the hand. I was referred to Jason Pruzansky by my rheumatologist after it became clear that had the large basal joint and ligaments at the base of my thumb required reconstruction as a result of rheumatoid arthritis. I am a nervous patient of a certain age and Dr. Pruzansky not only addressed my surgical and post-surgical requirements but was exceedingly patient, kind, serious and calming. I recommend him without reservation.
