I was a mechanic for most of my life and in later years began to drop things because my thumb hurt to grip. I saw Dr. Stucki who said it was arthritis in my basilar joint, and that he could help. He did help! We tried an injection but the arthritis was too far gone, so Dr. Stucki performed a surgery to replace the basilar joint with a portion of my own tendon. Afterwards, I saw Billy Kennington, who helped me get my hand strength back, and now I am good as new!
