Carpal Tunnel Release

What is Carpal Tunnel Release?

This is an operation to divide the thick ligament in the palm that compresses the median nerve. It is used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome

The operation involves a cut in the palm approximately 3cm long. The ligament is divided and the nerve is inspected. 

After Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

It is a short operation and patients usually go home on the same day. 

Patients typically notice that their nighttime symptoms are instantly improved after a carpal tunnel release. Other symptoms, such as numbness in the fingers can take longer to improve. 

For more information on carpal tunnel release, we recommend contacting our surgeons for an initial consultation.
