Infection Following Carpal Tunnel Surgery

Despite the current sterile techniques used for all surgeries, infections following carpal tunnel surgery can occur. The seriousness and subsequent treatment options will vary depending on the location of the infection. Infections can range from very minor ones that are treated only with antibiotics to very major infections that require a repeat surgery. Furthermore, an infection after this surgery may decrease the chance of successful results through the development of scar tissue and possible stiffness.
 
If an infection does develop, your doctor will discuss the treatment options and expected outcomes with you.
