Wrist Surgery

Regain Function and Stability Today

A problem with your wrist often means you have problems with the use of your hands. When you have limited to no use of that part of your body, everyday activities become extremely difficult. The pain and discomfort you feel could be due to a number of things, such as:

  • Genetic deformities
  • Arthritis
  • Pinched nerves
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Fractures or other injuries

Fortunately, our surgeons at miVIP Las Vegas offer wrist surgery to help relieve your symptoms. There are a number of methods that may be performed, such as:

  • Reconstruction
  • Bone fusion
  • Wrist joint replacement

Your miVIP physician will work with you to diagnose and treat the issue so you can regain full use of your wrists and hands again.

How Does It Work?

Because there are so many different conditions that may be causing you pain, every wrist surgery may be slightly different. If you are in need of reconstruction, for example, your miVIP surgeon may connect your tendons or cut them in order to reduce swelling and restore proper movement. Other procedures involve:

  • Fusing bones together to improve the shape of your wrist
  • Bone fusion to help arthritic joints so you can rotate and use your hand without pain
  • A wrist joint replacement to remove the damaged joint and place artificial portions of bone

Whichever procedure will best resolve your issues, our miVIP surgeons use a minimally invasive technique to maximize your comfort and your recovery. Using arthroscopic cameras, our doctors will be able to see inside your joint to pinpoint and resolve damage.

The Surgeons at miVIP

Our team wants to help you have a pleasant experience with your wrist surgery. All of our surgeons are board certified and highly qualified to help you get on the road to recovery. You can rest assured that your wrists are in good hands when you choose miVIP.

Your Recovery

We utilize minimally invasive techniques to help our patients have an easier recovery. A minimally invasive surgery means that you will have:

  • Smaller and fewer incisions
  • Less risk of bleeding
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less pain after your operation

Following your wrist surgery, your physician will give you instructions on how to manage any light pain or swelling you may encounter. He or she may also give you some physical therapy exercises you can do to help the joint heal as well as strengthen it so you can quickly regain use.

Cost of Procedure

How much you will actually pay for your surgery will depend on what kind of insurance you have. At miVIP, we accept most forms of PPO or POS insurance. You can always call one of our friendly customer service representatives in order to discuss the details of your policy or your options for payment.

Other Important Information

Be sure to keep any follow-up appointments with your physician so the two of you can discuss your recovery and your progress. Be sure to report any unusual side effects immediately, such as excessive drainage from the surgical site or a fever.
