Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release


This procedure is performed to relieve pressure on the median nerve, alleviating the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome and restoring normal sensation to the hand and fingers. The endoscopic technique, performed on an outpatient basis, can produce less pain and scarring than traditional open surgery and may allow for a quicker recovery.


Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release

What is Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release?

To begin, your wrist and hand are numbed. The surgeon makes one or more openings in your skin. The openings are for a video camera device (called an “endoscope”) and tiny surgical instruments.

Relieving the pressure
The surgeon treats a band of tissue called the “transverse carpal ligament.” It spans across the carpal bones of the hand, forming a space known as the “carpal tunnel.” The surgeon divides this ligament to make more room in this tunnel. This takes pressure off of the median nerve.

End of procedure
When the surgery is done, your wrist and hand maybe placed in a splint. You’re monitored for a brief time before going home. Follow your surgeon’s instructions for a safe recovery.
