Abstract

Wrist denervation for the management of chronic wrist pain is a safe and effective procedure that can delay or eliminate the need for more invasive and kinematically compromising salvage procedures. Wrist denervation has become increasingly popular since it was first described in 1959, and the technique has evolved from more extensive denervations to limited single-incision approaches. Many physicians have performed this procedure as a palliative approach to managing chronic wrist pain and as an adjunct to other procedures.
