The wrist is a complex joint comprised of eight small carpal bones and multiple ligaments. The small bones and ligaments of the wrist can make the diagnosis of wrist injuries difficult. Accurate diagnosis of a wrist injury requires surgeon experience as well as multiple imaging modalities, including x-ray, CT scan, and MRI. All of these modalities are available on site at the clinic.
Many wrist conditions are treated without surgery. If surgery is needed, our surgeons are well-experienced in all surgical techniques for the wrist. These include minimally invasive arthroscopy surgery for the wrist, innovative surgery for fractures or dislocations of the wrist, and reconstructive techniques for arthritis of the wrist when needed.
The Fondren Orthopedic Group has surgeons who specialize in diagnosis and treatment of wrist injuries, both routine and complex. Our surgeons have ABOS Board certification, as well as additional Fellowship training for the wrist, with over 20 years of experience in practice. The Fondren Orthopedic Group wrist surgeons are committed to evidence-based medicine and latest treatment strategies to produce the best outcome for their patients.
