Carpal Tunnel Surgery

It is critical to treat carpal tunnel syndrome before the condition worsens. If the symptoms are ignored, they may cause long-term damage.

Surgical intervention for carpal tunnel injury:

When physical therapy, splinting and other forms of non-surgical treatment fail, surgery is the best option to restore function and alleviate pain for severe CTS.

Depending on the severity of your carpal tunnel, your symptoms, your overall health, and the anatomy of your hand, your doctor may choose to perform the surgery in one of two ways:

  • Surgery may be performed using an endoscope and a small incision.
  • Surgery can also be performed using a standard surgical incision and decompression of the nerve.

The choice of which procedure to perform is made by the surgeon.
