Pain relief in osteoarthritis of the proximal interphalangeal joint is a difficult problem. Joint denervation, a technique yielding good reproducible results in wrist and first carpometacarpal joint osteoarthritis, is, at the proximal interphalangeal joint level, a good alternative to implant arthroplasty or arthrodesis. The surgical technique is simple and may be performed under local anesthesia. Results are satisfactory with about 80% pain relief.
