Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatments

In today’s tech-savvy society, more and more people suffer from injuries involving the nerves of the hands and wrists. As the muscles in the hand and wrist are engaged more and more, it is possible for inflammation to develop around the nerves in the hands and wrists. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a condition in which the nerves traveling through the wrist become pinched and cause numbness in the fingers of the hand.

Methodist Moody Brain and Spine Institute offers minimally invasive surgery for CTS that helps patients get the treatments they need with much shorter recovery times.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Surgery

Because the median nerve passes under a wrist ligament called the transverse carpal ligament before entering the hand, this ligament can cause inflammation in the wrist, resulting in tingling or pain. Using a minimally invasive endoscopic approach, our team at Methodist Moody Brain and Spine Institute can make two small incisions on either side of this ligament and cut it, bringing relief to the nerve and ending symptoms of CTS.
