Wrist replacement surgery or wrist arthroplasty means removing damaged bone or joints in the wrist and replacing them with artificial or prosthetic joints.
As the first surgeon in India to perform revision wrist replacement in India, Dr Vikas Gupta categorically believes that wrist replacement surgery requires extreme skill as it is an excessively challenging and delicate procedure considering the intrinsic bone structure and smaller joint size that hands have in comparison to larger joints such as the hips or knees.
Since it is a major surgery and recovery takes several weeks, weigh the benefits and risks if you are considering going in for wrist replacement. Age is also an important factor. But the final decision is based on your level of pain and how much that pain limits your activities.
