This procedure allows for us to examine the inside of the wrist through small incisions in the skin. It is useful for treating injuries from fractures to ligament tears and arthritis. Its greatest advantage is the ability to examine the wrist joint without disrupting supporting structures, thus providing more rapid recovery with minimal complications. We receive referrals from orthopaedic surgeons all across the ArkLaTex for repair of these injuries.
