Advanced wrist arthroscopy is used to treat various injuries or abnormalities to the cartilage and ligaments of the wrist. Two small incisions are used to access the area, and recovery is quick. Dr. Knight will place a camera in the wrist joint, giving him an unobstructed view of the area. Wrist arthroscopy can also be used as a diagnostic tool.
A more nontraditional reason to visit a hand specialist is for hand rejuvenation, a high demand procedure in Southern California cities like Long Beach. Hand rejuvenation is used to treat the loss of volume that comes along as a normal part of the aging process. Dermal fillers are injected into the hand in a procedure that takes 5 to 10 minutes. The fillers plump up the areas in the hand which have lost volume, helping soften the hand’s appearance. Results are immediate and last 12 to 18 months.
Whether you are looking for a hand doctor that will treat an existing hand or wrist ailment or someone to turn back the clock, Dr. Knight is an excellent choice.
