Wrist Arthroscopy

zOverview

Wrist arthroscopy is a wrist surgery that allows visualization of ligaments and cartilage surfaces of bones. Arthroscopy is often the best way of directly examining the injury and repairing the structure.

During the arthroscopy procedure, a small camera fixed to the end of a narrow tube is placed through a small cut in the skin directly into the back of the wrist joint. The surgeon will place the camera in different positions by making several small cuts to see the cartilage, bones, ligaments and the joint lining called synovium. The areas of ligaments with a good blood supply and can be repaired, but other parts that do not have a good blood will be removed.
