In this add–on procedure, the provider surgically immobilizes an additional interphalangeal joint of the finger following arthrodesis of an initial interphalangeal joint at the same session. He may or may not use an internal fixation device to fuse the joint. He induces artificial bone generation in the joint area with the help of a graft he obtains from another part of the patient’s body. An interphalangeal joint is a joint between phalanges of the hand.
