Is joint replacement surgery in the wrist possible?

This procedure is possible and may be a viable solution for you depending on your specific condition.

Joint replacement in the wrist can be a solution if you have painful arthritis and the other treatment options are not working for you. Joint replacement surgery is most often performed in the knee or hip but it can be done in the wrist as well. During the procedure, the damaged parts of your wrist bones are removed and replaced with artificial ones.
