Mike Marsh stepped on a pickleball court three years ago and immediately became addicted. He had always played with some thumb pain, but last winter it got so bad that he couldn’t even grab a ball. His left thumb had developed big bone spurs and he could barely bend it. He went to see Dr. Verheyden and he recommended surgery to remove the bone spurs and rebuild the tendon. Six weeks after surgery, Mike was back on the pickleball courts playing again, pain free.
