Wrist Sprains and Strains
Wrist Strains: Injuries to the muscles or tendons of the wrist are called wrist strains. A wrist strain may occur due to a sudden force on the wrist such as bending the wrist beyond its natural movement or due to repetitive movements of the wrist.Some of the most common symptoms of wrist strains include pain, weakness and spasms of the wrist muscle, swelling, cramps and difficulty in moving the wrist muscle.

The wrist is comprised of two bones in the forearm, the radius and ulna, and eight tiny carpal bones in the palm. The bones meet to form multiple large and small joints. A wrist fracture refers to a break in one or more of these bones.

Wrist Joint Replacement
Wrist joint replacement surgery, also referred to as total wrist arthroplasty, involves replacement of a severe arthritic wrist joint with an artificial joint made of metal and plastic components. It relieves pain and restores function when conservative treatment fails to provide relief.

Wrist Ligament Reconstruction
The human wrist is made up of small bones joined together by a band of tough fibrous tissue known as ligaments. Ligaments also join the bones in our wrist to the radius, ulna, and metacarpal bones, and aid in the proper functioning of our wrist. Any injury to the ligaments disturbs the normal alignment of our wrist bones causing them to wear out faster resulting in significant pain and eventually leading to arthritis.

Arthrodesis is the surgical immobilization of a joint by the fusion of the adjacent bones. Total wrist arthrodesis, also known as wrist fusion is a surgical procedure in which the wrist joint is stabilized or immobilized by fusing the forearm bone (radius) with the small bones of the wrist. Arthrodesis is done to relieve the pain after severe trauma to the wrist. A painful wrist causes disability and affects function of the upper extremity.

Your wrist is a complex joint made up of eight small bones called carpal bones. These bones are supported by connecting ligaments. Various conditions can affect your wrist joint such as wrist fractures, ganglion cysts, ligament tears, and chronic pain. Wrist arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed to view, diagnose, and treat problems of your wrist joint.
