Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is one of the most common hand/wrist ailments we see. It can be a very painful condition that involves burning, tingling and pain in the fingers and hand. The pain can sometimes be treated with ice or a brace, but in some cases surgery is required. Surgery for CTS involves cutting the transverse carpal ligament to relieve pressure on the median nerve. Our doctors will walk you through every detail of the surgery if we determine a surgical treatment is best for you.

Depending on your particular type of injury or underlying problem, it may be determined that surgery is the best option. An orthopedic hand surgeon may perform several types of surgical hand procedures, including:

- Joint replacement, also called arthroplasty, in people with severe arthritis of the hand
- Nerve repair
- Surgical drainage to remove a collection of pus if there is an abscess in the hand
- Tendon repair
If you experience pain, numbness or other problems with your hand, it’s important you seek help soon.
