Wrist arthroscopy

Surgical procedure used to diagnose and treat various conditions of the wrist.
Unlike traditional open surgery, arthroscopy is less invasive and is performed using an instrument called an arthroscope, which is a thin tube with a camera and light source on the end.

Distal Radius Surgery

Surgical procedure performed on the wrist joint to treat recent (acute) or old fractures.

Wrist arthroscopy plays a fundamental role in distal radius surgery because it allows not only perfect alignment of the fracture but also allows evaluation and repair of ligamentous injuries. It also allows rapid rehabilitation of this type of fracture.

After a period of immobilization for pain and edema management or ligament healing time, physical therapy is required for recovery.

Surgical procedure used to treat trigger finger , a condition in which one of the fingers of the hand becomes stuck in a flexed position and then abruptly releases.

During surgery, a small incision is made in the palm of the hand and the pulley that is causing the blockage of finger movement is cut.

This allows the finger to move smoothly without getting caught. Surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis and recovery time is usually short.

It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions after surgery to ensure proper healing and recovery. The improvement of your symptoms is immediate after the surgical procedure.

It is a surgery performed to relieve the carpal tunnel, which is caused by pressure on the median nerve in the wrist, causing symptoms such as numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and fingers. A small incision is made in the wrist to cut the ligament that is pressing on the median nerve.

Recovery from hand numbness is immediate after surgery and strength will be recovered as the days go by.

Scaphoid Fracture

A scaphoid fracture is an injury to the carpal bones. For diagnosis and treatment, an x-ray and tomography (3-plane view of the fracture) must be performed.

Surgical treatment can be done through small incisions and using the arthroscope, allowing correct alignment of the fracture to detect and treat associated ligament injuries, achieving a prompt recovery of mobility, if not repair of the ligaments is necessary.
