When Is Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery Necessary?

The goal of carpal tunnel release surgery is to treat carpal tunnel syndrome—the uncomfortable condition characterized by pressure on the median nerve where it runs through the carpal tunnel, a narrow passageway of ligaments and bones located in the wrist. Many cases of carpal tunnel syndrome can be effectively addressed through conservative approaches like wrist splinting, corticosteroid injections, and anti-inflammatory medications, but surgical treatment is sometimes recommended to “release” the ligament that is pressing against the median nerve.

What Does Surgical Treatment Entail?

Carpal tunnel release surgery can often be performed endoscopically, which involves using a special surgical instrument with a camera on the end (endoscope) to increase the surgeon’s visibility and reduce the necessary size of incisions. This minimally invasive approach typically results in a faster recovery period and less post-operative discomfort. Less commonly, a traditional “open” surgery—which involves a larger incision—may be necessary to access and release the ligament that’s placing pressure on the median nerve.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
