What to Expect During Hand and Wrist Surgery
Your doctor will administer anesthesia to numb the area before surgery. Once you are at ease, a small incision will be made to access and treat the damaged portions of the wrist. The duration of the procedure depends on the type of surgery performed and the severity of your condition.
You are likely to experience pain, aching, and swelling in your wrist after wrist surgery. To alleviate these symptoms, your physician will prescribe medications and other treatments. If you notice redness, heat, or discharge at the surgical site, you should contact your surgeon immediately.
