Carpal Tunnel Treatment

Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release
Endoscopic carpal tunnel release may allow faster functional recovery and less postoperative discomfort than traditional open release surgery. The surgeon makes two incisions (about half an inch each) in the wrist and palm, inserts a camera attached to a tube, observes the tissue on a screen, and cuts the carpal ligament (the tissue that holds joints together). This two-portal endoscopic surgery, generally performed under local anesthesia, is effective and minimizes scarring and scar tenderness, if any. One-portal endoscopic surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome is also available.
