Carpal Tunnel Release surgery that makes all the difference
Carpal Tunnel Release surgery that makes all the difference
Carpal tunnel syndrome is an extremely common issue that affects more than 3 million people in the United States every year. It is especially common in women, as women are three times more likely than men to get carpal tunnel. Another significant risk factor is having a family history of carpal tunnel or small carpal tunnels. Jobs that require repetitive motions with your hand/wrist further increase your risk. We, at Genesis, are committed to not letting these risk factors and a diagnosis of carpal tunnel prevent you from living life freely.
What does carpal tunnel syndrome feel like? As carpal tunnel syndrome develops over time, the symptoms can progressively get worse. At the start, you might feel minor numbness that can go away with just shaking out your hands. But as carpal tunnel syndrome gets worse, you could have less grip strength, more pain, less feeling in your fingers and even cramping. In other words, you won’t be able to do the daily tasks you are so used to. Typing on a laptop or even holding a pen can become challenging, but it doesn’t have to be this way.
What can or should be done about this? One way to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome is to keep your wrists straight when doing repetitive activities, and using a splint or brace can help supplement this goal. Keeping your hands warm and taking breaks all can help protect you from carpal tunnel syndrome. If diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, you can still work to reduce pain by using wrist exercises/stretches or even regularly wearing a wrist splint.
But if carpal tunnel syndrome is left untreated, it can even cause permanent muscle damage. So, many diagnoses of carpal tunnel syndrome require a more comprehensive solution that produces long-lasting relief. This is where Genesis Orthopedics & Sports Medicine can step in and provide complete care with our carpal tunnel release surgery. In short, carpal tunnel release surgery increases the size of your tunnel and relieves the pressure on your nerve. New techniques and technology have made this procedure more reliable and successful. We, at Genesis, are completely confident in our ability to relieve you of your pain and bring you back to moving freely.
Who is a good candidate for carpal tunnel release surgery? The best candidate is someone with carpal tunnel syndrome that hasn’t been relieved by nonsurgical interventions and has significant pinching of the median nerve. When short-term remedies prove insufficient, carpal tunnel release surgery can help relieve the numbness and make it possible for you to use your hands as you are so accustomed to.
Here at Genesis Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, we have some of the best medical technology in the world, and we know exactly what steps to take to ensure you have the best carpal tunnel release experience possible. In fact, we promise to take every precaution possible to reduce risk of complications and reduce your recovery time. Our primary goal is getting you back to being your true self.
Your body wears from natural usage, and your median nerve is no exception. From family history and repetitive usage, carpal tunnel syndrome can cause significant pain and challenges doing simple things like write your name. This shouldn’t be the case. You should be able to move freely for your entire life.
And that’s exactly what we’re about at Genesis: restoring your ability to move freely in your body, without the pain. Restoration is one of the gifts the medical profession can provide to the world—true restoration of your mobility.
A typical patient should expect:
Here at Genesis Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, your care and comfort are our top priorities. Your entire experience will be geared around having a safe and successful surgery that provides long-lasting relief to the pain you have grown so accustomed to. So our entire experience is geared around preventing: (1) Any kind of infection; (2) Bleeding due to damaged blood vessels; (3) Injury to the median nerve. These goals are designed to reduce complications associated with your carpal tunnel release and ensure you are satisfied with the procedure. We use modern technology to accomplish these goals. Specifically, we will walk you through your procedure options – an open carpal tunnel release or endoscopic carpal tunnel release. These two procedures are very similar and both extremely successful, with the main difference being that a small camera is used in the endoscopic release to improve accuracy of carpal release. This kind of modern technology at Genesis directly improves your care. We will walk you through the procedure and make a care decision that best suits your needs, so that we can get you back to being yourself as soon as possible.
