It's up to you to decide whether to take that advice; or to consult other experts who might give different opinions; or to form your own decision. It depends partly on how important it is to you to play tennis. The orthopedist may be an expert on wrists but not an expert on how important (or unimportant) tennis is in your life. I imagine there might be wrist braces and things; a sports injury expert might know about that. You could use the other hand (or switch hands from time to time). Maybe you could play ping pong or soccer instead.
