Cubital Tunnel Release

Cubital tunnel release is a medical procedure that is designed to help relieve the symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome, also called ulnar nerve compression, a condition that can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the arm and hand. During the procedure, a surgeon will make a small incision near the elbow and carefully release the pressure that is being placed on the ulnar nerve, which runs through a narrow tunnel in the elbow known as the cubital tunnel. By releasing this pressure, the nerve is able to function more effectively, which can help to alleviate the symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome and improve overall hand and arm function. The procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis and can be performed using a variety of techniques, including open surgery or minimally invasive approaches.
