Wrist Arthroplasty

  • Ask Trevor CHT: should I get a wrist replacement?

    Sandra asks: "My wrists are weak and painful. My hand therapist has suggested wrist replacements. Is that a normal thing now?"

  • Ask Trevor CHT: fused wrists

    Rachel asks:

    "I have rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. My hands are very painful and I have several joints replaced over the years. I have little movement in my wrists and am considering getting them fused.

    Is it safer to let them fuse naturally or fuse them surgically now?"
