The small bones in the wrist and connecting forearm bones are susceptible to fractures in sports and fall injuries. Impact to the wrist when falling on an outstretched arm or from a crushing injury can cause multiple wrist fractures. Dr. Steven Struhl is an accomplished orthopedic surgeon who offers wrist fracture treatment at Shoulders & Knees orthopedic clinics in NYC and Westchester.
The carpal bones in the wrist are small and fragile, allowing for extensive wrist flexibility. Impact to the hand and arm can shatter these small bones, as well as damage the lower end of the radius or ulnar in the forearm. Wrist fractures can impact not only wrist function but also the nerves and tendons responsible for hand and finger dexterity. Repairing wrist fractures is a complex procedure to ensure the soft tissues are also protected and repaired to restore complete hand and wrist function.
