What is Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery? 

At Smith Medical we offer a range of surgical procedures, and one of the defining surgeries we perform is carpal tunnel release surgery. Our goal is to help patients looking for carpal tunnel surgery find relief from symptoms caused by long-term pain or underlying issues.

Carpal tunnel release surgery is performed to relieve symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, a common condition that occurs when the median nerve in the wrist is compressed. The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway in the wrist where the median nerve and tendons run through. 

When the median nerve becomes compressed, it can lead to pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and fingers. In the absence of relief from conservative treatments such as wrist splinting, medication, and physical therapy, carpal tunnel release surgery is typically recommended. If you are ready for surgery, Smith Medical is the best cash-based surgery center that places pricing upfront from the beginning. 

Patients may consider surgery if:

  • Conservative efforts are ineffective
  • The carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms are severe
  • The pain is debilitating

Types of Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

There are two types of carpal tunnel release surgery: open-release surgery and endoscopic release surgery. During open-release surgery, a small incision is made in the palm, allowing the surgeon to cut the ligament compressing the median nerve. This procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and requires a short recovery period.

Endoscopic release surgery involves the use of a small camera called an endoscope to guide the surgeon in cutting the ligament through one or two small incisions in the wrist or palm. Compared to open-release surgery, this minimally invasive approach often results in less scarring and a faster recovery time.

Overall, carpal tunnel release surgery is a safe and effective treatment option for individuals suffering from moderate to severe carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms. While the surgery may provide immediate relief from symptoms, patients need to follow post-operative instructions and participate in physical therapy to maximize their recovery and prevent the recurrence of symptoms.

With advancements in surgical techniques and technology, carpal tunnel release surgery has become a commonly performed procedure with high success rates in improving hand function and quality of life for individuals with carpal tunnel syndrome.
