Hi! My surgeon is suggesting that I get the ulnar shortening surgery to relieve pressure the ulnar side of the wrist as I've torn several ligaments in the wrist. I had a wrist arthroscopy last month so he could see the extent of damage and so he can plan for future surgery if needed. The damage turned out far more extensive than the MRI/arthrogram showed. I have a partial tear of the scalpholunate ligament, complete tear of the lunotriquetral ligament and I've worn through the TFCC. I have the typical ulnar sided pain, and pain around the lunate bone but lately, I'm experiencing more and more problems on the thumb side of the wrist.
Has the ulnar shortening surgery helped relieve or reduce symptoms for anyone who also tore ligaments?
