Lunate ReplacementSurgery
Lunate replacement surgery remains experimental at the moment with data on outcomes still being collected. It seems unlikely at the moment that lunate replacement will restore a "normal" wrist function however reasonable pain relief with preservation of movement and grip strength seems possible.

The lunate bone is excised and replaced with a pyrocarbon implant this is stabilised in the wrist by using a slip of one of the wrist flexor muscles.
