About Wrist Joint Replacement

(Wrist Arthroplasty)

What is it and what are my treatment options?

Wrist Joint Replacement (Wrist Arthroplasty) Overview

Wrist joint replacement (wrist arthroplasty) is a surgical treatment option for wrist arthritis. The procedure effectively reduces symptoms and improves wrist joint mobility and function.

How is a wrist arthroplasty performed?

A wrist arthroplasty is performed under general anesthesia. After the patient is completely asleep and can feel no pain or discomfort, a Carolina Orthopaedics and Neurosurgical Associates (CONA) wrist specialist removes arthritic wrist bone and cartilage and replaces it with artificial joint components. The new joint moves freely and easily without producing any pain.

What does wrist arthroplasty treat?

Wrist arthroplasty treats severe wrist arthritis that does not improve after nonsurgical treatment. Symptoms that are dramatically decreased after surgery include:

  • Decreased range of motion
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness

This has been one of my most positive experiences at a Dr's office. I was treated with respect and love. They made my surgical procedure less stressful and very positive.

These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
