When the median nerve in your wrist becomes squeezed or stretched Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) occurs. The finger, hand muscles, and feelings are controlled by your median nerve.
The median nerve originates in the upper arm, travels through the forearm, and then terminates in the hand. The carpal tunnel surgery is the passageway through which the median nerve travels when it passes through your wrist.
A collection of bones, tendons, and ligaments constitutes the carpal tunnel. The median nerve has less room if the carpal tunnel broadens. The nerve thus becomes compressed as a result of this narrowing, which affects the functioning of your hand and fingers.
Anyone can develop carpal tunnel syndrome, although women are more likely to do so.
WHAT IS MIS ENDOSCOPIC CARPAL TUNNEL SURGERY?
Endoscopic carpal tunnel release is a kind of minimally invasive surgery in which a tiny device with a camera is put into a small incision on the wrist. With the help of this camera, the surgeon can release the transverse carpal ligament without making a major incision.
On top of the tendons and nerves at the wrist lies a band known as the transverse carpal ligament. The median nerve is relieved of pressure by releasing this ligament, which helps the patient's fingers stop hurting and tingling.
After this treatment, patients can return home the same day as it is a daycare surgery. Depending on the severity of the condition, carpal tunnel syndrome-related pain and numbness may go away immediately after surgery.
The Micro invasive technique is a cutting-edge surgical tool that allows for Micro-invasive Carpal Tunnel Release done with just one little incision of about 1-2 cm.
Post-surgery, your wrist is usually wrapped for a week. Physical therapy is not necessary for the majority of our patients. Although the recovery period is typically between one and two weeks, you can use your hands and fingers the day following surgery with certain limitations.
The MIS carpal tunnel surgery proves very effective and results in faster recovery with minimal scarring.
The endoscopic procedure makes a fairly small incision in a wrist wrinkle, which frequently results in less time spent in the operating room, a lesser chance of complications from wound healing, and a quicker return to work and daily activities.
Carpal tunnel surgery is very effective and successful for many patients. However, due to unhealthy lifestyles or other factors, some patients might develop CTS again after surgery. The recurrence rate of CTS after surgery is less than 5%.
Yes, carpal tunnel syndrome is a medical condition that can highly affect lifestyle and health thus, many insurance policies cover carpal tunnel syndrome. Talk to our HospiOne buddy for more details.
