Carpal Tunnel Surgery
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a nerve compression disorder suffered by many people. In sum cases, the patient requires carpal tunnel surgery to resolve their condition. Compression of the median nerve within the carpal tunnel causes carpal tunnel syndrome. This is located at the junction of the palm and wrist. The symptoms include numbness, burning, and tingling of the fingers and hands. Symptoms are usually worse at night when laying down in a horizontal position. Sometimes their pain wakes the patients up at night. If untreated, it can progress to permanent and irreversible weakness and disability. Unlike many conditions of the hand, therapy, splinting, massage, and stretching do not cure the problem. Surgery, when performed properly, works well and can be life changing. Surgeons who are board certified in Surgery of the Hand are uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat carpal tunnel syndrome.
