Arthroscopic Wrist Surgery
There are many reasons why a patient may benefit from wrist arthroscopy or arthroscopic wrist surgery. Wrist arthroscopy involves placing a tiny camera into the space between the wrist bones for diagnostic (see what’s wrong) and therapeutic purposes (try to fix what’s wrong). Wrist arthroscopy has been around for many years. There are certain problems of the wrist which require a wrist arthroscopy, such as:
- Triangle fibrocartilage complex tear (TFCC) – a common ligament injury in the wrist.
- Wrist pain.
- Torn Ligament Repair.
- Help fix a broken bone, such as the radius.
- Debride inflammatory tissue of wrist.
- Assist in removing one or more bones.
- Remove a cyst.
Wrist arthroscopy is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. Recovery is usually quick.
