Elbow and wrist

The wrist joint consists of the distal portion of the ulna and the radius and bones of the wrist (scaphoid, pyramidal, etc.). The ligaments provide stability.

In the practice of certain sports, mainly golf, tennis and sailing, tendon overload injuries such as tendinitis, epicondylitis, sprains, nerve entrapments (carpal tunnel) and cartilage lesions can occur. In the practice of impact sports, mainly skiing and snowboarding, fractures and dislocations can occur after falls.

Arthroscopy provides a non-aggressive way to treat problems within the joint with less tissue damage and faster, more comfortable recovery.
