Wrist Treatments

Distal Radial Fractures
Treatment

Distal radial fractures involve a break in the radius bone near the wrist. These fractures are commonly treated by manually manipulating the bones back into its anatomical alignment. Then, Dr. Askari uses a splint to immobilize the wrist and allow the bone to heal. Depending on the severity of the fracture, surgery may be necessary to stabilize the bone fragments with plates, screws, or pins.

Dupuytren’s Contracture
Treatment

Dupuytren’s contracture is caused by an abnormal thickening of the tissue under the skin of the palm, causing one or more fingers to bend into the palm. Treatments aim to straighten the fingers and improve hand function, either through needle aponeurotomy to disrupt the cords under the skin, collagenase injections to weaken the cords, or surgery to remove the thickened tissues. After treatment, hand therapy focuses on stretching and extending the affected fingers to maintain correction and restore movement and flexibility.

Fasciotomy

This surgery is the only effective way to treat acute compartment syndrome. It is done by cutting the fascia to relieve tension and bring back circulation to the affected area.

Surgical Drainage and
Debridement

These types of procedures are usually used to fight bone, joint infection, or abscesses. The goal is to remove any biological debris (such as damaged or diseased tissue) and clear out infections.
