If you suffer from painful and stiff wrist please Schedule an appointment with one of our orthopedic specialists as soon as possible
The term “Kienböck’s disease” refers to a disease in which the lunate, one of the small bones in the wrist, loses blood supply.
As living tissue, Bone requires a regular blood supply for nutrients. If the bone loses blood supply, the bone can eventually die in a state known as osteonecrosis.
Damaging the lunate bone can cause a stiff, painful wrist and lead to arthritis over time.
