Terrific Doctor and person. He saved my finger in 2015 when I had a micro bacterial infection caused from being stuck by a Red Snapper. I am back seeing him again in 2016 for repair of a cut thumb that severed my nerve. One of the best!!

Procedures Performed

Dr. Sauer says..

Dr. Sauer is pleased to offer a new procedure. There is a minimally invasive procedure which can repair and refurbish the cartilage worn out at the base of the thumb due to osteoarthritis. After removing the diseased face of the trapezium (bone at the base of the thumb), the joint is resurfaced with autologous (your own) ear cartilage. The surgery can return normal, painfree motion at the base of the thumb in 3 to 4 months.
