I have a Clubbed Thumb, also known as Brachydactyly type D or BDD. It is only visible on my left thumb and has been there since birth . I wanted to know what I would need to do to get it looked at and what options there are to make the thumb more normal looking .... I have been looking on the net and found that surgery can correct this. My reason for this is I have been very conscious of my thumb for many years and I want rid of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Jay
I just realized my 9 year old son has clubbed thumbs. Can this cause him to struggle with writing? I m always trying to encourage him to improve his hand writing and it has stayed the same. Now I m wondering if this can be causing an issue for him and what I can do about it?
Hi, I am 57 yrs old and have significant pain in my right hand at the base of my thumb. It is a sharp cramp-like pain that is worse when I write or try to grip anything. I have osteoarthritis in the joints of my fingers and thumbs but this is a new symptom. Over the holidays I did work for a gift shop tying bows on gift bags and the pain started when I finished. I am a clinic office coordinator so type a lot as well, but so far don t have numbness in my hands. If the holiday job aggravated my thumb, would ice or heat help? I sometimes take Alieve but try to limit use because of stomach upset. Please let me know your thoughts on relieving the pain. Thank you!

Hi Doc, I recently had a hair transplant operation. Some of the grafts were transplanted in the area where hair density was less. Now after one month, as was told the transplanted hair have started to fall. But the problem I want to ask is that, the already existing hair in those regions are having very slow growth. I want to ask that does the transplant effect the already existing hair growth also?
