Our wrist doctor at Flagstaff Bone & Joint is a recognized expert in the diagnosis and treatment of wrist injuries and conditions.

Wrist pain in patients can be the result of a condition that has transpired over time or from overuse injuries like tendonitis (medically referred to as tendinitis), carpal tunnel syndrome, and arthritis, or as the result of an injury from an accidental fall or recent sports injury, such as a fracture or sprain.

In some circumstances, and if not identified early on, conditions such as tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome may create extreme bone, joint, and tendon discomfort, making wrist surgery a possible treatment option for relieving your wrist pain.
