Minimally invasive treatment for hand and wrist disorders leads to better outcomes and greater patient satisfaction. Treating areas of injury and dysfunction without disruption of healthy tissue speeds recovery and minimizes scarring.
This requires specialized tools such as arthroscopes that look into joints and endoscopes that traverse soft tissue spaces. This allows the surgeon to operate within areas that would normally require larger open incisions.
Medications can be delivered to specific locations without surgical disruption. Finger contractures and arthritis are commonly treated in this fashion.
Fluoroscopes and specialized drills are used to reduce and fix fractures without the need for incisions and stitches. This enhances recovery and minimizes stiffness.
The use of minimally invasive techniques and hand and wrist surgery therefore speeds return to work and limits discomfort. This methodology is commonly used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, arthritis, fractures, joint sprains and ligament injury.
