Trapeziometacarpal arthritis is a relatively common condition. It gives pain on key pinch and pin pinch.  Patients lose the first web space span (i.e cannot pull a large book from a shelf).  Early treatment consists of anti-inflammatories, injection and splintage.  The results of surgery are extremely good.

  • Tennis Elbow: This common condition can occur when the tendons become irritated or inflamed on the outside of the elbow, causing tenderness and pain at the outer side of the elbow.
  • Golfer’s Elbow: Similar to Tennis Elbow, the tendons in the inner arm can cause pain on the inside of the elbow and may travel along the forearm.
