About Kienböcks Disease

Kienböck’s disease, also known as Avascular Necrosis of the Lunate, is a rare, debilitating condition that causes chronic pain in the wrist. Kienböck’s affects the lunate bone, which is one of eight small bones in the wrist. Typically caused by injury, the lunate bone loses its blood supply, leading to the death of the bone. Kienböck’s has been found mostly in men ages from 20-40, though women have also been diagnosed with the disease.
