Other than in acute circumstances Mr Durrant will trial non surgical options for treating hand injuries, in the event that this is not successful he is able to offer a range of both arthroscopic and open procedures. Mr Durrant will provide you with all the information necessary for you to make an informed decision about the best surgical option for you.
Surgical treatments for arthritis include partial removal of damaged bone to relieve pain but maintain some mobility, or fusion of some on the bones to stop them rubbing and causing pain.
Wrist surgery is the third most common joint to be arthroscopically operated on, behind knee and shoulder surgeries. The benefits of this type of surgery for the patient include minimal post operative pain, quicker recovery time, less chance of post operative complications, and very little scarring. Arthroscopic procedures are able to repair ligament tears, remove ganglion cysts, treat carpal tunnel syndrome, repair wrist fractures, and treat chronic wrist problems.
