Many procedures are available to treat the stiffness, pain and weakness that can occur with arthritic conditions in the wrist.

Fractures in Children

 Children's bones are soft and flexible, and not always easily visualised on an X-ray. This can lead to missed diagnosis and delayed treatment unless you seek specialist advice.

One of the hand fractures in children that is often missed is mallet finger. This is where the extensor tendon, located at the finger tip, ruptures and is often associated with a finger fracture and torn nail bed. Treatment typically involves debridement, repair of the nail bed, nail replacement and either a splint or K wire to stabilise the fracture. Your child will receive a thorough assessment at London Hand Specialists to make sure they receive the most suitable treatment for their injury.
