Carpal Tunnel Surgery

Orthopedics Consultation Man

The pain and numbness throughout your fingers can be distressing if you have carpal tunnel syndrome. When it becomes severe enough that wrist braces and corticosteroids don’t help, then you may need surgery. Our team of surgeons and specialists can help you find relief from your hand pain with carpal tunnel surgery.

Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the medium nerve becomes compressed or irritated. When this nerve is compressed, pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness can occur throughout the hands and fingers. If left untreated, it can impact your ability to perform daily tasks and affect your quality of life.

At MD West ONE, our team can provide carpal tunnel surgery if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Persistent Symptoms: If conservative treatments such as wrist splinting, medication, and physical therapy haven’t provided sufficient relief, surgery may be necessary.
  • Nerve Damage: If the compression on the median nerve is causing muscle weakness or atrophy in your hand, surgery can help prevent further damage.
  • Functional Limitations: If carpal tunnel syndrome significantly affects your ability to perform work-related tasks or activities of daily living, surgery may be the best option to restore function.

Our skilled surgeons at MD West ONE can perform carpal tunnel surgery using advanced techniques to ensure our patients’ best outcomes. After an initial consultation with our team of doctors, our team can perform the procedure under the following steps:

  • Anesthesia: During the first steps of the procedure, local anesthesia will be used the numb the wrist and hand. In specific cases, our team can also provide general anesthesia.
  • Incision: A small incision will be made at the palm’s base or along the wrist’s palm side.
  • Carpal Tunnel Access: Our surgeon will carefully cut the transverse carpal ligament, relieving pressure on the median nerve.
  • Closure: Once the ligament is cut, the incision is closed with sutures or surgical staples, and a sterile dressing is applied to allow it to heal.

After carpal tunnel surgery, our team will provide post-operative care to help support you during your recovery, including medication and pain management, physical therapy, and follow-up appointments. We will work closely with you throughout this time to manage any post-operative pain and ensure you experience comfort throughout your recovery.
