Treatment of traumatic and pathologic fractures/dislocations of the wrist and hand

 Fractures of the Distal Radius and Ulna—injuries to the two long bones of the forearm at the level of the wrist may cause significant lack of mobility, function, pain and arthritis of the wrist if not treated appropriately.

Carpal Bones—injuries to these small bones of the wrist are common; the most common being a scaphoid fracture which may be treated with cast immobilization, arthroscopically assisted surgical treatment

Metacarpal Bones—fractures and dislocations of these "long" bones are common and may require splint immobilization, placement of pins or plates for healing

Phalanges—fractures and dislocations of the bones of the finger may be associated with significant decrease of mobility and stability of the fingers; treatment consists of splint immobilization, placement of pins or plates for healing
