What are the different types of hand surgery for arthritis in Wigan?

When it comes to Wigan hand surgery to help arthritis there are 2 different types of procedures that can be carried out. The procedure you receive will depend on the severity of your arthritis and what is best for you as an individual.

The first form of hand surgery for arthritis in Wigan which can be performed is a fusion procedure also medically known as arthrodesis. In this procedure the bones of the joint are fused together, this way it is made a lot stronger, more stable and most importantly pain free. However with this procedure, due to the joints being fused together there will be little flexibility or movement.

A replacement procedure is the second form of surgery for arthritis which is medically referred to as arthroplasty. Within this procedure the affected/damaged joint is removed and replaced with an artificial implant. All pain will be relieved as there won’t be anything there to cause any more pain and the shape of your hand will be restored through the new implant. With this type of procedure there will still be some function in the hand so you will still be able to use it and move it.
