Goal of Surgery
TFCC tear injury involves damage to the fibrocartilage disc between the wrist and the hand.
The goal of TFCC repair surgery is to identify where injury to the disc has occured and if it is torn or has come away from the wrist, to repair the tear and stabilise back in its normal position.
Gupta will perform an arthroscopic (key hole) surgical procedure
- Minimally invasive
- Use of suture only to perform the repair
A simple procedure where the damage to the TFCC is cleaned up, and where it can be repaired, it is sewn back into position.
