Pyrocarbon Wrist Replacement

Gold Coast Wrist Surgeon Dr Michael Maguire performs pyrocarbon joint replacement surgery for end stage wrist arthritis. This is an alternative to traditional total wrist arthroplasty.

This implant called the Amandys is a large pyrocarbon pebble and acts as a "spacer" device to maintain wrist joint height and soft-tissue tension to preserve wrist motion and treat painful arthritis.

A good alternative to wrist fusion which prevents futher  wrist motion.
