What Are My Treatment Options?1,2,3,4,5
Wrist arthroscopy is surgery that uses a tiny camera and surgical tools to examine or repair the tissues inside or around your wrist.
This procedure involves surgically removing the surfaces of the joints affected by arthritis and joining the bones with plates and screws until they grow together, or fuse.
Unlike hip or knee replacement, wrist replacement can be performed on an outpatient basis.
Finger Joint Fusion3
Similarly, to wrist, certain joints of the fingers can be fused to ease pain and correct deformity.
Finger and Thumb Joint Replacement3
For the proximal and metacarpophalangeal joints (MCPs) where mobility is more important, joint replacement is possible.
The basic goal of fracture fixation is to stabilize the fractured bone, to enable fast healing of the injured bone, and to return early mobility and full function of the injured extremity.
Carpal Tunnel Release3
In this procedure, the surgeon releases, or cuts free, the carpal ligament from the median nerve to relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Causes of Hand, Finger and Wrist Pain1,2,3
There are several reasons why you might be experiencing hand, finger or wrist pain, and here are some of the most common causes.
Understanding Hand Anatomy1
The bones of the hand provide support and flexibility to the soft tissues. Joints are formed wherever two or more of these bones meet. The surfaces of the bones where they meet to form joints are covered with a layer of cartilage, which allows them to glide smoothly against one another as they move.
