New Treatment Option

The MICRONAIL Fixation implant is the first implant of its kind available in the United States. It allows patients to start using their wrists within one to two weeks in a limited way, whereas traditional treatment methods may immobilize the wrist for four to twelve weeks.

With MICRONAIL Fixation, surgeons can treat a broken wrist through a unique, minimally-invasive surgical technique. The MICRONAIL implant is placed inside the patient’s fractured wrist bone (the radius) through two small, 1-inch incisions on the side of the wrist.

These small incisions help to reduce the soft tissue damage caused by traditional surgical repair treatments.
