Hand and Wrist Surgery Q & A
What is hand & wrist surgery?
Hand and wrist surgery is a procedure that treats severe injury and pain. Surgery is used when other conservative methods aren’t giving you the relief you need.
Why would I need hand & wrist surgery?
You may need hand and wrist surgery if you have one of the following conditions:
Chronic pain in hands and wrist
Injured tendons, ligaments and nerves in the hands and wrist
Bone fractures or trauma
Carpal tunnel syndrome (median nerve compression)
In most cases, patients have hand and wrist surgery because of truamatic injury like fractures. Surgery can stabilize the fractured bones so that the patients can begin to move their wrist even before the bones are healed and without the need for a cast. This leads to earlier return to activities with less pain and without permanent deformity.
What is recovery like for hand & wrist surgery?
After your hand and wrist surgery, you’ll need to take some time off work and other activities to recover. Get plenty of rest, attend follow-up visits and ice the affected area to reduce swelling. Your surgeon will also let you know when to begin physical therapy to aid in your recovery and restore strength.
