A new way to treat Wrist Breaks resulting in less scarring & faster recovery than traditional treatment options.
“Less-Invasive” or “Minimally-Invasive” surgery gives patients several advantages:
- Smaller incisions, resulting in smaller scars
- Less trauma to surrounding tissue, thus less pain
- Faster, less painful recovery than traditional surgery
The wrist is the most commonly broken bone in the human body. It’s a natural reaction, when we fall, to put our hands out to catch ourselves and … ouch … that’s when most wrist breaks occur.
Approximately 300,000 people are treated each year in the U.S., alone. Yet, the standard of care for this type of break hasn’t changed for decades. Until now.
If you are researching surgical options online, you (or someone you love) may have recently suffered a traumatic event – in which the wrist has been broken and is now stabilized. Or, perhaps you (or someone you love) are faced with a revision surgery (second surgery) to readdress the break.
You may be looking for the surgical choices that are available to you. Or, perhaps a single option has been explained to you and you are wondering if there is an alternative treatment that may be available to you.
That’s why we, at Wright, have developed this website. We invite you to read more about Wright’s MICRONAIL™ Fixation implant. It’s a new and unique treatment for repairing broken wrists.
The surgical technique used by surgeons to implant this product uses smaller incisions, which disturbs less soft tissue during your surgery. That can lead to less pain and faster recovery after surgery along with smaller, less obtrusive scars.
