The Carpal Tunnel Syndrome causes a great deal of pain and discomfort in the hands. In general, the pain can be alleviated by undergoing physiotherapy and minor surgery procedures for correction. The procedure performed in our Renew Skin and Health Clinic is exquisitely performed by highly qualified and experienced surgeons. Our surgeons can ensure a fast functional recovery and superior cosmetic results, so you can easily forget that you have ever had this disorder.
Experts state that the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by a combination of genetic and predisposing factors like: diabetes, pregnancy and heavy manual work. It causes a lot of pain in the hands, because this syndrome affects the thumb, index finger, long and radial half of the ring finger in the distribution of the median nerve which generally leads to paresthesia, pain and numbness (which occurs during the night, if the wrist is held flexed). Our Renew Skin and Health Clinic specialists generally recommend physiotherapy in order to relieve some of the symptoms and advise you to wear a wrist splint during the night. If you are considering minor surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome treatment, know that there are two possible procedures to choose from.
The first kind of minor surgery procedure you can undergo for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome treatment is the Open Release Surgery which involves an incision of up to two inches being made in the wrist, after which the surgeon will cut the carpal ligament to ensure the enlargement of the carpal tunnel and to relieve the pressure on the tendon.
The second kind of minor surgery carpal tunnel syndrome correction procedure is the Endoscopic Surgery which unlike the previous one requires two incisions being made in the wrist and palm. The surgeon will then insert a camera which projects the images on a screen followed by the cutting of the carpal ligament. This procedure promises less post-operative discomfort and a much faster functional recovery than the Open Release Surgery. Both of these procedures are performed under a local anesthetic, ensuring that they are painless and that the discomfort felt during minor surgery is minimal. Our surgeons will also try to reduce the side-effect of scarring as much as possible.
