Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
What is CTS?
It’s a relatively common condition that causes mild to severe pain, numbness and a burning or tingling sensation in the hand and fingers.
What is the procedure?
Surgery for CTS is known as carpal tunnel decompression surgery.
It is performed using local anaesthetic, so your hand and wrist will be numb, but you’ll remain awake throughout. During surgery, the surgeon will open the roof of the carpal tunnel to release the ligament and reduce the pressure that’s being placed on the median nerve in the wrist.
How long will it take?
For most patients, surgery will take between 30 minutes and an hour.
How long will you be in hospital?
This is a day-case operation, so you don’t need to stay in hospital overnight.
