Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after doctors for wrist fractures in Palm Beach. Wrist fractures are injuries that result after breaking of one of the bones in the wrist. These wrist injuries typically occur after trauma and can be very distressful to patients. The fractures are most common in young active patients and older age groups with osteoporosis.

Wrist Fractures Symptoms and Diagnosis

The wrist has a total of 10 bones; two bones at the end of the forearm (radius and ulna), as well as those bones that help the wrist bend up and down called carpal bones. Any one of these bones can be broken in wrist fractures, but the radius is the most common of all. The goal of treatment is to allow the bones to heal to achieve a pain free and mobile wrist.



Surgery can fix fractures with many different types of methods: plates and screws, wires, and pins. The goal of surgery is to use methods that allow the bones to remain in place and the patient to move their joints the fastest possible.

Incisions for wrist fracture procedures are highly variable; its best to discuss the independent procedure with Dr. Rueda at the time of your visit so you know the location, length, and details of the operation.
