Arthritis of Wrist and Hand

Arthritis is a disease affecting the cartilage in the joints. The smooth cushioning lining in the cartilage deteriorates and causes structural changes in the wrist and hand, which can be seen on X-rays.

Sufferers often experience joint pain or swelling, limited joint motion, limited function, and weakness.

When other measures have failed to relieve arthritis symptoms, Dr. Morse can perform a reconstructive procedure to help restore function and relieve pain. Common procedures include joint fusion and joint replacement.
