Carpal Tunnel Release

  • What is Carpal Tunnel Release?

    Carpal tunnel release involves cutting the carpal ligament to reduce pressure on the median nerve. The carpal ligament is one of the tissues that connects the bones in your wrist and the nerve that runs through your wrist to your hand. Carpal tunnel release is a minor procedure that can be performed as a day surgery with local anaesthetic. The operation is usually done through a small cut on the palm of your hand near your wrist or by keyhole surgery.

  • Surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome is usually done if you have moderate to severe symptoms that have lasted for at least six months. Symptoms include pain, numbness and tingling. The pain should go away immediately after surgery but symptoms of numbness and tingling may take longer to recover.

  • At Parkway East Hospital, you can look forward to receive treatment in a warm and comforting environment. Our friendly staff and specialists are here to see you through each step of your journey towards recovery.
