Hand Surgery for Patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition, often caused by repetitive motion injuries to the hands. It can also be caused by fluid retention or overuse of the hands.
The carpal tunnel is a pathway through the wrist where certain tendons and nerves are located. Excess pressure can cause damage to the nerves, resulting in numbness, tingling, aching, and impaired function of the hand. While less severe cases of carpal tunnel syndrome may be treated with anti-inflammatory drugs and splinting, more severe cases may require surgery.
Carpal tunnel surgery is designed to restore function and normal sensation to the hand. Surgical procedures typically involve dividing tissue that is pressing on the nerve to relieve tension.
