Early Mobilization After Thumb (Carpometacarpal) Arthroplasty
Clinical Trial ( IRB ) #: 18-082-2
Title: Early Mobilization After Thumb (Carpometacarpal) Arthroplasty
Principal Investigator: Dr. Erin Mead-Morse
Description: The purpose of this research study is to determine the best post-operative therapy after a thumb (carpometacarpal or CMC) arthroplasty. Patients are currently placed in a thumb splint for 4 weeks after their thumb surgery. However, new research has questioned whether 4 weeks of splinting is needed. Our study will compare patients'; outcomes between 2 groups. One group will be placed in a splint for approximately 10 days after surgery and the other group will be in a splint for the normal duration after surgery (about 4 weeks).
