Re: Cheilectomy and scar tissue

Is your joint cartilage intact? Or is there bone on bone pain? You may need an implant or fusion done. Or there is a newer type procedure done more recently using an external fixator (pins that extend outside the skin) which can distract or "stretch" the joint tissues, which appears to be having good results.
