I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my right triscaphoid joint about 3 years ago. It doesn't cause me much discomfort, which is good because I'm a right-handed endodontist. No one has been able to determine what caused it, but apparently my best course is to make sure it doesn't get worse by not abusing it. The hand surgeon I consulted said he didn't want to cut me yet.
