Arthroscopic TFCC Repair

If your symptoms have not improved with conservative management then you may be a candidate for an arthroscopic TFCC (triangular fibrocartilage complex) debridement or repair. This involves using small cameras to see inside the wrist joint, assess the problem firsthand, and treat it accordingly. Sometimes the TFCC needs to simply be debrided which means cleaning up frayed pieces of damaged tissue. Other times the TFCC is torn and needs to be repaired with suture. In the case where a repair is performed, you will be immobilized for a total of 6 weeks after surgery to allow for the repaired tear to heal. Thereafter, you will begin therapy to regain motion and strength.
