Wrist Denervation

This operation has been popular in Europe for many years but has been relatively slowly accepted in the English speaking regions. Through my experience in London, Paris and Germany I have come to adopt it as a first line treatment for disabling wrist pain. It involves cutting the tiny nerves that innervate the wrist only in order to break the pain signals. Pre-operative assessment by a hand therapist is essential prior to embarking on this route.
