Hi, my name is Bakhtiyar Omar from Kazakhstan. My left thumb gave terrible trouble and my doctor in my native country told me to undergo trapeziectomy. I wasn’t sure whether to undergo it, so started searching about it online. I came across few medical tourism companies in India. After contacting them, I concluded to opt for my surgery through Joint Replacement Surgery Hospital India. The executive helped me with travel and food arrangements. They also assisted with medical visas for my attendants. After I arrived at the hospital, my surgeon came to meet me and also cleared all my queries to make me feel easy and comfortable. Everything went well as planned. The hospital rooms were spotless and the services were excellent. The hospital staff was compassionate. I extend my sincere thanks to everyone, including my surgeon, nurses and the team of healthcare consultants for their wonderful services, support and care throughout the entire process.

Trapeziectomy Procedure & Recovery & Effectiveness

It is generally an outpatient surgery. The arm is made numb with the help of local or general anesthesia. Afterwards the surgeon usually gains access to the trapezium by making an incision at the base of the thumb.

The post surgical procedures, however, are much lengthier. The stitching and the dressing must usually remain on the site for 2 to 3 weeks. Trapeziectomy in India reviews of patients indicate that they are required to wear a splinter for six weeks. During this time the patient is required to visit a physiotherapist and here they will be taught exercises which will prevent the thumb from getting numb and regain the lost abilities. The complete course of recovery may take close to 6 months.

If the trapezium is removed, it provides additional space for the other bones to move. This can provide a considerable amount of pain relief as the remaining bones which are arthritic are not in contact with the other surface. It can also help a person to regain the lost abilities which they have lost touch.
