Onward Orthopedics performs wrist replacements on patients suffering from pain and loss of function due to arthritis. During a joint replacement, damaged parts of the joint are replaced with artificial components.
Total Wrist Replacement
Unlike most replacement surgery, wrist joint replacement can be done as an outpatient procedure. To start the procedure, your surgeon will make a small incision to access your wrist joint. Damaged ends of your lower arm bones, as well as damaged ends of your carpal bones are removed and replaced with a prosthesis.
Wrist Replacement Basics:
- Relieves pain and restores motion
- Replacement lasts up to 15 years
