Wrist Surgery

The wrist is a complex joint comprised of eight small carpal bones and multiple ligaments. The small bones and ligaments of the wrist can make the diagnosis of wrist injuries difficult. Accurate diagnosis of a wrist injury requires surgeon experience as well as multiple imaging modalities. Some wrist conditions can be treated without surgery. If surgery is needed, our surgeons are well-experienced in all surgical techniques for the wrist. These include minimally invasive arthroscopy surgery for the wrist, innovative surgery for fractures or dislocations of the wrist, and reconstructive techniques for arthritis of the wrist when needed.

Injuries that can lead to wrist surgery:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Distal Radius Fracture
  • Scaphoid Fracture
  • Ganglion Cyst
  • TFCC tear
  • Ligament Tears
  • Wrist Arthritis Surgery
  • Wrist Sports Injuries

Wrist Fractures

A wrist fracture is a medical term for a broken wrist. The wrist is made up of eight small bones which connect with the two long forearm bones called the radius and ulna. Although a broken wrist can happen in any of these 10 bones, by far the most common bone to break is the radius. This is called a distal radius fracture.
