About Wrist Fusion Surgery

Wrist fusion, also known as wrist arthrodesis, is a surgical procedure used to alleviate severe wrist pain and restore stability by permanently joining the bones in the wrist. This surgery is often recommended for patients with debilitating wrist conditions that do not respond to conservative treatments.

Common conditions treated with wrist fusion include:

Advanced arthritis in the wrist can cause significant pain and limit movement. Wrist fusion can relieve pain by eliminating the joint.

Chronic instability of the wrist joint, often due to ligament injuries, can be corrected through fusion.

Complex or non-healing fractures of the wrist can be treated by fusing the bones to ensure stability and healing.

Persistent infections that damage the wrist joint may necessitate fusion to remove the infected tissue and stabilize the wrist.

Some congenital deformities of the wrist may be best treated with fusion to improve function and reduce pain.

Symptoms indicating the need for wrist fusion can include:

Chronic pain that does not respond to conservative treatments such as medication, physical therapy, or injections.

A feeling of the wrist giving way or moving out of place, leading to difficulties in performing daily activities.

Difficulty moving the wrist through its full range of motion, affecting tasks like lifting, gripping, and twisting.

Ongoing swelling or redness around the wrist joint indicating possible infection or severe arthritis.

Benefits of Wrist Fusion Surgery

Wrist fusion offers significant benefits, enabling you to return to an active lifestyle. Here’s how it can benefit you:

The primary benefit is pain relief. By eliminating the problematic joint, wrist fusion can significantly reduce or eliminate wrist pain.

Post-surgery, you’ll likely experience improved stability in the wrist, allowing you to perform daily activities without fear of instability.

The procedure can restore function to the wrist, enabling you to engage in tasks that were previously difficult or painful.

Wrist fusion provides a long-term solution for severe wrist conditions, eliminating the need for future surgeries.

Wrist Fusion Procedure:

Our experienced surgeons use advanced techniques to perform wrist fusion effectively. Here’s a simplified breakdown of the procedure:

You will receive regional or general anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure.

The surgeon will make an incision over the wrist to access the affected bones and joints.

The surgeon will prepare the joint surfaces, align the bones in the desired position, and secure them with plates, screws, or pins to promote fusion.

The surgeon will close the incision with sutures or surgical staples and apply a bandage to protect the area.

Wrist Fusion Recovery

Recovery from wrist fusion surgery requires careful management and rehabilitation. Our team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. Here’s what you can expect:

Pain and discomfort post-surgery can be managed with prescribed pain medications.

Your wrist will be bandaged and immobilized in a splint or cast to protect the surgical site and promote healing.

Rehabilitation exercises are essential to restore strength and function to the hand and forearm.

Most patients can resume light activities within a few weeks. Gradual return to normal routines and exercise will be guided by your surgeon.
