Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis can be a painful and debilitating disease if it is not managed correctly.

Marjorie had RA since she was 7 years old but only developed joint deformities in her 50's. The best treatment option for her was to have the MCP joints of her right hand replaced with prosthetic joints. Professor Biddulph performed the operation and promptly referred her to Hand Therapy. The rehabilitation process required patience and dedication and included the need for a dynamic splint that encouraged early movement of her fingers.

The result was a pain-free, aesthetically pleasing, functional hand. Fortunately we see fewer joint deformities these days because of the excellent drugs that are available. The patient has given consent to publications of these photographs.
