Being at the forefront of medical advancements, Dr. Sauer is pleased to be able to offer a minimally invasive procedure for those suffering pain or limited mobility due to osteoarthritis within the hand. This revolutionary surgery removes diseased bone from the base of the thumb and replaces it using cartilage taken from the patient's own ear. Known as arthroplasty, the reshaping or reforming of a joint is a highly effective way of resolving medical problems using cartilage from within the patient's own body.
Moreover, by using fragments of tissue already present within the body it can also reduce the risk of possible post-surgical infection. Within the procedure, cartilage is taken from the rear of the ear so that no deformity is left but it also microscopically resembles that of the cartilage already found within finger joints. According to Dr. Sauer, "the surgery can return normal, pain-free motion at the base of the thumb in 3 to 4 months."
As well as providing a variety of hand surgeries, additional procedures offered include skin reconstruction and grafting following cancer surgery, burns or wounds. The practice also features an on-site procedural room for surgery requiring localized anesthetic as well as an on-site Hand Therapist.
