A wrist fracture is a medical term for a broken wrist. The wrist is made up of eight small bones which connect with the two long forearm bones called the radius and ulna. Although a broken wrist can happen in any of these 10 bones, by far the most common bone to break is the radius. If the hands are injured or arthritis in the fingers or wrists leads to deformity and/ or interferes with function, surgery may be an option – or a necessity.
