Hand, wrist and elbow surgery.

Major elbow joint disorders include epicondylitis ("tennis elbow"), arthrosis, arthritis, elbow immobilization, median, ulnar and radial nerve entrapment lesions. Among wrist joint and hand disorders are: arthritis, arthrosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tenosynovitis stenosans (fingers and wrist tendon sheath disorder), contracture, sprung finger. More frequently arthritis and arthrosis of the wrist are reported.

Arthritis is an inflammatory joint disease. Arthritis is accompanied by swelling, redness and pain in the joint area. In some cases joint dysfunction is also observed.

Arthrosis, or osteoarthrosis, is characterized by gradual destruction of joint tissues and, to a lesser degree - by an inflammatory process. Symptoms are similar to the signs of arthritis along with the crackling joints. However, pain occurs only when the condition becomes acute.

Hand, wrist and elbow surgery is primarily aimed at the treatment of joint disorders in order to restore their function and correct deformities. However, in Russia, arthrodesis is still the primary method of joint therapy. It requires immobilization of the joint, which significantly reduces the patient’s quality of life.
