"Dr. Heithoff informed me that the cartilage was gone on my right thumb. He suggested transferring the closed tendon to cushion the joint would eliminate the pain. To date, it's worked remarkably. It will take a while longer to build up the strength, but to date, I'm completely satisfied. Dr. Heithoff has followed up and has given me invaluable advice. I would recommend this gentleman to anyone." - Keith P.
