What is Carpal Tunnel Release?

Carpal Tunnel Release surgery is a procedure that is used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition in which a nerve in the wrist is pinched. Carpal tunnel syndrome is characterized by hand weakness, persistent tingling, numbness, and radiating pain in the arms and hands. This condition can start slowly and progress over time. Carpal tunnel pain is caused by pressure on the median nerve, which runs from the forearm to the hands.

Who Performs Carpal Tunnel Release?

A General Surgeon or Orthopedic Surgeon with experience and expertise in carpal tunnel release performs this surgery.

Types of Carpal Tunnel Release?

Two types of Carpal Tunnel Release are:

  • Open release: A traditional method in which the surgery is usually done by cutting open the wrist.
  •  Endoscopic carpal tunnel release: In this surgery, a thin, flexible tube containing a camera is inserted into the wrist through a tiny cut (incision).

Preparations Before Carpal Tunnel Release?

  • Tell the doctor about all the medicines you are currently taking, including supplements, over-the-counter(OTC) drugs, herbs, and vitamins. You will probably need to stop if you take medications that make the blood clot more difficult, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, or naproxen.
  • Try to quit smoking before the surgery; if you are a smoker, it will help you heal faster.
  • You may need a blood test or an ECG before surgery.
  • Usually, 6 to 12 hours before the surgery, you won't be allowed to eat or drink anything.

You may also need other special preparations, depending on your medical condition.
