Question Has anyone had knuckle replacement surgery?

I have had RA for about 20+ years and am currently on disability. Have had gradual deformity through the years especially with my hands. My fingers are angled sideways about 30-45 degrees where the fingers join the hand (knuckles). Forgot the correct name for those joints. I'm only in my 40's and will probably have to have surgery on both hands in the future. I really do fear having that done when the time comes. Have you had any surgeries on your hands? Tell me about it if you would. How long did it take you to be able to use them again? How are the artificial joints working for you? Thanks for any info. MV
