How much pain are you really in?  Is it so bad that you would consider having a wrist replacement?  Wrist replacement surgery may be an option for you if you have severe pain, non-surgical remedies have offered no relief, pain keeps you awake at night, or you cannot perform the normal daily tasks in your life.

Are you a good candidate for a wrist replacement?

The best candidates for wrist replacement surgery are those who suffer with rheumatoid or osteo arthritis but others have benefited from this type of surgery.

Wrist arthroplasty involves removing damaged bone or joints and replacing them with artificial, or prosthetic, joints. The artificial joints provide patients with a better range of motion and more stability. This makes everyday tasks like writing much easier….More at Pain Level is main factor in opting for wrist replacement – Sioux City Journal
