Dr. Rossillon, specialist in hand surgery FMH, accredited at the CIC Clinic in Saxon, was the first in Valais to implant a prosthesis of the trapezius metacarpal thumb joint (joint between the wrist and the thumb).
The aim of this prosthesis is to allow the patient to regain hand mobility and eliminate pain. The thumb is the essential finger that differentiates the human from the monkey and allows him/her to grasp the hand...
This technique is now used for all patients with arthritic and painful hands, which is very common in people over 60 years of age.
It is currently a cutting-edge surgery that is destined to become as classic as the hip prosthesis is today.
