Relieve Your Joint Pain. Once and for All.
Imagine your severe joint pain in your hand not getting in the way of your everyday tasks. SoutheastHEALTH and Dr. Andrew C. Trueblood can help. We've teamed up to bring you a minimally invasive, same-day procedure to relieve your joint pain.
Dr. Trueblood is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and holds a subspecialty certificate in Surgery of the Hand. He specializes in treating conditions of the hand, wrist, shoulder & elbow. His particular focus is in the treatment of:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Pain at the base of the thumb
Dr. Trueblood’s approach to thumb joint replacement is unlike other techniques. He uses your own tendon tissue to replace the faulty joint rather than an implant. This acts as a natural cushion and the tissue is less likely to wear out. The approach eliminates the need for more surgeries and reduces the amount of physical therapy needed.
