What to expect from carpal tunnel release surgery

The goal of carpal tunnel release surgery is to heal the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome for the patient. To accomplish this, Dr. Engineer most often uses endoscopic minimally invasive techniques to divide the ligament compressing the median nerve. With the release of the pressure on the median, one will experience the alleviation of symptoms that have led to upper extremity debilitation by giving the nerve more space with the carpal tunnel. Furthermore, use of the endoscopic technique results in less scarring, faster recovery, and a quicker return to one’s normal activities of daily living and occupational duties. 

In most cases, carpal tunnel release surgery will relieve the pain and allow the patient to regain any lost function. Following your recovery, you may find yourself free of all your former symptoms.
