Biologics – Hand & Wrist

WHAT WE TREAT

Hand and Wrist

Ortho RI Biologics provides an innovative approach to get you back to doing what matters most, offering biologic procedures for a wide variety of hand/wrist injuries and conditions.

Wrist arthritis

The breakdown of the cartilage that coats the ends of bones and joints in the wrist. Normally, damaged cartilage repairs itself as older cartilage is degraded. When this degradation outpaces repair, cartilage breakdown occurs and damage to bone results. Symptoms of wrist arthritis include pain, tenderness, stiffness, decreased flexibility, a grating sensation during movement, the formation of bone spurs around the affected joint.

Thumb/CMC arthritis

The breakdown of the cartilage that coats the ends of bones and joints in the thumb or carpometacarpal joint (thumb joint.) Normally, damaged cartilage repairs itself as older cartilage is degraded. When this degradation outpaces repair, cartilage breakdown occurs and damage to bone results. Symptoms of thumb/CMC arthritis include pain, tenderness, stiffness, decreased flexibility, a grating sensation during movement, the formation of bone spurs around the affected joint.

TFCC tears

An injury to the triangular fibrocartilage complex, or the TFCC, which contains the soft tissues in the wrist that cushion and support the carpal bones and help stabilize the forearm. Symptoms include pain, swelling, bruising, tenderness, stiffness, limited range of motion, and a popping sensation.

Wrist tendon and ligament tears, sprains, and strains

Soft tissue injuries in which either the ligaments or the tendons in the wrist are stretched or torn. A sprain affects the ligaments, while a strain impacts the tendons. These injuries typically respond well to nonsurgical measures, which can improve its strength and range of motion. Symptoms include pain, swelling, bruising, tenderness, stiffness, limited range of motion, and a popping sensation.
