What is joint reconstruction?

Joint reconstruction surgery is a medical procedure that involves repairing or replacing a damaged joint in the body. This type of surgery is often necessary for individuals who have suffered from joint injuries or conditions such as arthritis that have caused significant damage to the joint over time. During the procedure, your surgeon will replace the damaged tissue with an artificial joint.

Wrist joint reconstruction

Wrist joint reconstruction becomes necessary when conservative treatments fail to relieve conditions like severe arthritis, fractures, or chronic instability. The surgical procedure involves removing damaged or worn-out joint surfaces and replacing them with prosthetic components that mimic the wrist's natural movement. Our skilled surgeons employ the latest advancements in wrist joint replacement to:

  • Enhance hand and joint function
  • Alleviate discomfort
  • Relieve pain
  • Improve wrist mobility

Elbow joint reconstruction

Elbow joint reconstruction is recommended for patients with severe elbow arthritis or complex elbow fractures that cannot be resolved with more conservative treatments. Our expert surgeons perform elbow joint replacement using state-of-the-art techniques to address rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis.

The surgery involves removing the damaged joint surfaces and replacing them with high-quality prosthetic components, allowing for smooth elbow movement and pain relief. Benefits include:

  • Restores elbow function
  • Reduced stiffness
  • Enhanced range of motion

Shoulder joint reconstruction
