In brief: New technique

This is a newer, typically less invasive procedure to repair a broken wrist.
Fixing a wrist can require pins and/or plates on top of a bone which can limit the range of motion of a wrist and hinder healing. This is a technique that places an implant inside the wrist bone through smaller incisions. The hope is that this will cause less irritation and faster healing times.
