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!
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.
