Treatment for wrist fractures requires the highest level of attention to detail because of the many, small precisely arranged bones that make up this complex joint. Dr. Jeffrey Jacobson is a hand and wrist surgeon whose meticulous attention to detail allows him to help his patients achieve their best possible outcome.
Wrist fractures are actually quite common. Advancements in the field mean a greater number of treatments are available, which allows us to achieve optimal outcomes. If you have experienced limited range of motion because of a broken bone in your wrist, Dr. Jacobson can provide a variety of treatments for wrist fractures, including surgery, to restore function. Many doctors near Westchester, NY, refer their patients directly to Dr. Jacobson because of his specialized training and surgical skill.

Individualized Treatment for Wrist Fractures
Each case involving a fractured wrist is unique, and Dr. Jacobson will plan treatment according to your individual needs. By taking several factors into account, including your lifestyle, he will work with you to achieve your goals. Much like hand fractures, a broken bone in the wrist can often be treated using splints and casts to immobilize the area while it heals. When bones have been displaced because of more complex fractures, a surgical procedure may be necessary to ensure proper healing and restored wrist function.
I would highly recommend Dr. Jacobson for his professionalism, empathy and courtesy.

Because of the small size of wrist bones, many surgeries require precise technical skill and involve the use of pins, screws, and plates to reinforce the structure of the wrist and provide a foundation for renewed strength. Patients with severely damaged wrists are often referred to Dr. Jacobson for specialized treatment by their general orthopedists. Furthermore, if you have been told in the past that your wrist injury was too complicated to be corrected by surgery, we may still be able to help. When successful surgery is paired with a proactive physical therapy rehabilitation regimen, patients can experience a full range of motion and improved strength in their wrist.
