Wrist arthrodesis

Specialty of Orthopaedic surgery

Wrist arthrodesis is a surgical procedure that involves fusing the joints of the hand artificially. This operation aims to relieve pain, slow the development of disease, correct deformities, and provide stability to joints that have been damaged by arthritis or muscle weakness. Although wrist arthrodesis shows significant improvement over all these areas, it is possible that for some patients, difficulties lifting objects or performing certain movements persist. After surgery a recovery time is required in which use of the joint will be limited.
