Wrist Replacement

For people with limited, debilitating wrist movement due to arthritis or injury, wrist arthroplasty can help reduce discomfort and improve the ability to carry out normal daily activities. The procedure has become an increasingly popular solution for restoring mobility and stability, and frequently is done in conjunction with other surgeries addressing disorders of the nerves, tendons, and small joints of the fingers. Performed under general or regional anesthesia on an outpatient basis, wrist arthroplasty replaces the damaged or worn-out radius, ulna, and carpal bones in the wrist joint with a prosthetic joint made of metal and plastic that is held in place with screws and bone cement. After surgery, the wrist is immobilized in a cast and/or splint for several weeks to facilitate proper healing.
