What is carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome, also known as median nerve entrapment, is a condition that affects the hand. The median nerve is located on the palm of the hand, also known as the carpal tunnel. The median nerve is responsible for giving sensation to the thumb, index finger, and parts of the ring finger. The nerve is responsible for the muscle that leads to the thumb. Carpal tunnel syndrome is usually accompanied by pain, tingling, burning, or swelling in the palms of the hands and can extend to the first three fingers of the hand and the thumb.Carpal Tunnel Surgery in Kakinada

Diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome

An orthopedist can diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome by performing a physical exam and tests called nerve conduction studies. The physical exam may include a thorough examination of your hand, shoulder, wrist, neck, or any other part that may be causing pressure on the nerve. The doctor may also check if the wrist is tender or swollen. The doctor may also check the sensation of the fingers and the strength of the muscles in your hand. Carpal Tunnel Surgery in Kakinada

Carpal tunnel release surgery

To relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, an orthopedist performs an operation called carpal tunnel release surgery. The goal of carpal tunnel surgery is to reduce pain, swelling, and pressure on the median nerve. This operation is performed on an outpatient basis in a hospital operating room under the influence of general or local anesthesia. During surgery, the orthopedic surgeon makes 1 or 2 small incisions, about ½ inch each, in the palm or wrist. These small incisions result in very small scars which in most cases are imperceptible.

An endoscope is inserted through an incision. The endoscope has a camera at its end that allows the doctor to look for pathologies or abnormalities. The endoscope displays an image on the television screen which allows the surgeon to look directly inside the hand or wrist. Through the second incision, the doctor can insert surgical tools to cut the transverse carpal ligament, relieving pressure on the median nerve by widening the carpal tunnel. Once the ligament is cut, the incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures. Carpal tunnel release surgery is much less traumatic to joints, muscles, ligaments, and tissues than traditional carpal tunnel surgery, which is performed with long incisions. Carpal Tunnel Surgery in Kakinada

What is the cost of Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery in Kakinada?

Can carpal tunnel syndrome come back after surgery?
Carpal tunnel release surgery “unclips” the transverse carpal ligament that runs through the wrist and resolves the problem in most cases. The recurrence rate of carpal tunnel syndrome after surgery is less than 5%.

What are the results of carpal tunnel surgery?
Carpal tunnel release surgery is very effective in resolving pain and numbness in the wrist and fingers caused by the syndrome. The feeling of pain and tingling disappears a few days after the operation. However, it takes up to three months for hand function to recover.

What happens when you postpone your carpal tunnel surgery?
If your orthopedist has suggested surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome, you should not delay the procedure and do it immediately, as delaying the operation can lead to increased complications and also worsen the condition. Timely surgery can restore the function of the hand to the maximum as it was before the disease developed.

How long does the carpal tunnel surgery incision take?
Open surgery for CTS requires a 2 inch long incision. However, endoscopic carpal tunnel relief surgery, which is a less invasive technique for relieving pressure in the median vein, requires two small incisions of about ½ inch each. Carpal Tunnel Surgery in Kakinada

What are the most common causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by compression of the median nerve. Pregnant women and people with conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, an underactive thyroid, and some forms of amyloidosis are at increased risk of developing SCC.

People who perform repetitive and vigorous wrist movements and people who use computer keyboards with incorrect hand positions are also at risk for CTS. Prolonged exposure to vibration (such as using certain power tools) is also thought to cause carpal tunnel syndrome. However, in some cases, the cause of CTS cannot be determined. Carpal Tunnel Surgery in Kakinada

When can I drive after carpal tunnel surgery?
Driving is not recommended for approximately 1-2 weeks after carpal tunnel surgery.
