Vascularized Bone Graft (VBG)
What a joy to find this community!

I've just been diagnosed with Preiser's via MRI, and the orthopedic surgeon is recommending a VBG.  Given the rarity of Preiser's, I want to be sure to get a doctor who has done this unusual surgery often - I've gotten rather attached to functionality of my hand!

Any ideas how to find a surgeon experienced with this surgery? I live in Boston, which has a huge medical community, but will travel to find the right doc.  I hear there's a great surgeons in Houston.  Advice will be greatly appreciated!

Welcome.  I was happy to find this community too but it is very quiet.  I know nothing of Preiser's.  Sorry.  Hope someone else does

Perhaps I should clarify... I have necrosis of the scaphoid, which I'm told is called Preiser's disease.  I'd appreciate any input/ideas from other members!

Thanks,
Susan

I'm at three months with my partial fusion and don't have a lot of good words to say yet.  No complications idenitfied, just really sore, weak, and stiff wrist.  Hopefully more time will tell a good story.
