Carpal Tunnel Release

Carpal tunnel syndrome, one of the more common hand-related conditions, develops as a result of repetitive or awkward hand and wrist movements that strain the ligaments and nerves in the wrist. Increased swelling in an area of the wrist known as the carpal tunnel puts pressure on both the median nerve and the tendons that extend through the carpal tunnel. People affected by carpal tunnel syndrome experience numbness, tingling and even pain in the fingers because of the ongoing pressure on the median nerve.

Carpal tunnel release surgery involves reducing the swelling in the wrist by cutting a portion of the ligament that makes up the carpal tunnel. By doing so, pressure decreases and allows nerve transmissions to flow to the fingers. This procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis.
