    Hi KP2020,

    Thanks for your post to Helplines. Sorry but you've used a technical medical term 'triscaphoid' that is not in our information materials. I've passed the enquiry to a colleague, but if you know what kind of arthritis you have and the part of the body it relates to, do tell us and we'd be able to signpost you to information more quickly.

    Here at Arthritis Care we are not medically qualified, so although we are able to find information standard, information about self managing arthritis we cannot give people individual medical advice.

    If we can find appropriate information about surgery we will do so, but it would be unlikely to go so far as to say what is best surgery.

    We will post again as soon as we hear back from our colleague, but if you can clarify your question for us that might well speed up the final answer.

    If you are able to ring us on our free phone number and you'd like a chat about the situation, you'd be most welcome to ring us for some support.

    Kind regards

    Guy

    Dear KP2020,

    Our colleague has now come back to us, and from what we understand, triscaphe arthritis is osteoarthritis at the base of the thumb.

    Here is a link to Arthritis Research’s page on hand and wrist surgery that might be helpful:

    http://www.arthritisresearchuk.org/arthritis-information/surgery/hand-and-wrist-surgery.aspx

    I have also included the link to our booklet on surgery:

    If you would like more in depth information, please do email at:

    Alternatively, please feel free to call us on our Freephone number (0808 800 4050 Mon-Fri 10am-4pm) and we will do our best to help.

    Kind regards,

    Emma-Jane.
