A wrist fracture is a medical term for a broken wrist. The wrist is a complex joint 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 fracture conditions do not require surgery for treatment. 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.
