Hand/Wrist Surgery Malpractice

The wrist and hand are complex structures. The base of the wrist consists of the radius and ulnar. The radius is the large bone of the forearm, and the ulnar is the smaller bone that runs next to it on the pinky side. The base of the hand consists of small bones known as the carpal bones. They are held together with ligaments. The bones that make up the wrist have a smooth Teflon like surface. When these bones are in proper alignment the wrist can bend and move in a painless manner.
