Carpal tunnel release is a surgery that’s used to treat, and potentially heal, the painful condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome.
The median nerve and tendons that allow your fingers to move pass through a narrow passageway in the wrist called the carpal tunnel. When you injure this part of the body, swelling can cause the tunnel to press down on the nerve, resulting in numbness and tingling of the hand, pain and loss of function.
During a carpal tunnel release, a surgeon cuts through the ligament that is pressing down on the carpal tunnel. This provides more room for the median nerve and the tendons passing through the tunnel, and usually improves pain and function.
At Kayal Orthopaedic Center, we believe that an informed patient is a happy and healthy patient. That’s why we encourage you to ask questions about your upcoming appointment or surgery. It’s also important to provide our team with any important medical records or personal information.
