Carpal Tunnel Release

Carpal tunnel release surgery is an operation to relieve symptoms of capal tunnel syndrome (CTS). It involves cutting your carpal ligament. This ligament is connected to bones in your wrist to form the carpal tunnel. Several tendons and your median nerve run through this tunnel to your fingers. If pressure builds up in the carpel tunnel, your median nerve can't work properly and causes tingling, numbness or pain. Dividing the carpal ligament releases the pressure and eases your symptoms. 


In some cases general anesthesia is used, this when drugs are used to put you into a deep sleep during surgery. 


The procedure


  1. local anesthetic is used for this procedure to numb the hand and wrist

  2. The surgeon cuts about a 2-inch incision on the wrist

  3. The surgeon will make a cut near the bottom of your plam, and divide your carpal ligament to relieve pressure on your median

  4. The surgeon will close the cut in your skin with stitches and apply a bandage


After the procedure


  • You can go home the same day as the surgery if all goes well

  • Keeping your arm up will help to reduce any swelling

  • Wriggle your fingers regularly to keep your blood flowing properly, and to reduce any stiffness

  • Your stitches will be removed around 10 to 14 days after your operation
