MCP Arthritis and Replacement

The large joints on your hand at the base of the fingers are called MCP (metacarpophalangeal) joints. Over time, arthritis can damage these joints, causing pain. If other treatment options don't relieve the pain, your doctor may suggest artificial joints. Learn about what to expect during MCP replacement surgery.
