Wrist Arthroscopy

Wrist Arthroscopy at Ashtead Hospital

What is a wrist arthroscopy?

Wrist arthroscopy can diagnose and treat a number of wrist problems including:

  • Chronic wrist pain – such as cartilage damage can be smoothed and loose bits removed.
  • Wrist fractures – fractures of the wrist can be realigned and stabilised. Fragments of bone in your joint following a fracture may be removed. A distal radius fracture is a common wrist fracture that happens when you fall onto an outstretched arm.
  • Ganglion cysts - treatment can remove ganglions of the wrist and a stalk that often grows between your two wrist bones where ganglion cysts develop.
  • Sprained wrist - ligament tears can be repaired.
  • Infection of the wrist joint – can be washed out.
  • Inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis – excess joint lining can be removed.
