Carpal tunnel release is a surgical procedure used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition where the median nerve in the wrist is compressed and causes pain, numbness, and weakness in the hand and wrist. During the procedure, a surgeon will cut the carpal ligament to relieve the pressure on the median nerve. This can be done using an open technique or endoscopically, which involves using a small camera and instruments inserted through a small incision in the wrist. Carpal tunnel release can help alleviate the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, improve hand and wrist function, and allow patients to return to normal activities. Recovery time is usually a few weeks, and physical therapy may be recommended to help restore strength and mobility. If you are experiencing carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms, make and appointment to talk with Dr. Johnson to see if carpal tunnel release is a good option for you.
