What Wrist Conditions Require a Specialist?

The wrist is a complex network of tendons, ligaments, bones, vessels, and cartilage in and around the joints. Because of this complex structure, a wrist specialist may be able to more accurately diagnose the cause of wrist pain or function limitations than a general practitioner.

While your family doctor may make a general diagnosis for wrist pain or loss of function, a wrist specialist can quickly determine the difference between similarly presenting wrist conditions.

In cases where the hand and wrist has been crushed or severely traumatized, immediate access to a wrist specialist can often preserve the function of the hand and wrist.
