Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel

The carpal tunnel is the opening from the wrist to the hand. When the median nerve is compressed as it passes through this opening, it results in carpal tunnel syndrome.

Causes of Carpal Tunnel:

  • Frequent, repetitive, small movements with the hands, such as typing
  • Frequent, repetitive, grasping movements with the hands, including many sports
  • Joint or bone disease including arthritis
  • Hormonal or metabolic changes caused by menopause, pregnancy or a thyroid imbalance
  • Other conditions or injuries to the wrist such as strains, sprains, or dislocations.

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel differ from person to person, but some of the most common symptoms may include:

  • Weakness when gripping objects with the hand
  • Pain or numbness in the hand
  • "Pins and needles" feeling in the fingers (especially the thumb, index or middle fingers)
  • Swollen fingers
  • Pain or numbness that is worse at night

Treatment with Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel
Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel surgery is an outpatient surgery which involves a small incision at the wrist. A specialized device that contains both a camera and a cutting tool is then guided through this incision, and used to cut the transverse carpal ligament, while the surgeon observes the underside of the carpal ligament on a screen. This will free the pressure on the median nerve, and relieve the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome.

Our team is highly qualified and experienced to perform this surgery to maximize the benefit while minimizing the risks.
