HOW IT WORKS

A modernized carpal tunnel procedure that helps you move freely

Your median nerve has been secretly helping you complete daily tasks like buying groceries, sending text messages, and opening doors. Your median nerve is your primary nerve on the front of the forearm, and it is crucial to the general movement of your hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the compression of this nerve, and it can cause significant numbness and weakness in your hand, making it hard to do the things you need to do on a daily basis. With the advances of modern medicine, Genesis Orthopedics is able to successfully and safely perform a Carpal Tunnel Release to relieve you of this pain and bring you back to being yourself.

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.

Bringing back your hand strength, without any of the pain

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.

"What should I expect after a carpal tunnel release?"

"Correctly-performed surgery by expert medical professionals is the key to everything here"

A typical patient should expect:

  • You will be out of the hospital, to your home, on the same-day of surgery
  • Your wrist will be in a splint for 1 to 2 weeks
  • You will then begin a physical therapy program to improve the movement, strength, and healing of your wrist/hand
  • Recovery period can range from as little as a few days to a few months
  • Over this time, you will be able to build up strength and work yourself back to normal!

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.

COVID-safe
practices

We follow a rigorous protocol designed by our doctors to ensure that our clinic is COVID-safe. Every surface is disinfected, and you will have contact only with your doctor or physician assistant during your visit.

Our three-step approach to customized carpal tunnel release

Our work consists of three simple steps: evaluation, treatment, and recovery.


Quick understanding of the nature of your problem

First you book an appointment to determine with our expert medical team what exactly the nature of your wrist pain is. With this understanding, we can diagnose your condition and decide together on an appropriate care plan moving moving forward.

If surgery is necessary, we perform surgery

Our goal isn’t to perform as many surgeries as possible. Our goal is simply to find the best personalized care for your unique problem. But if surgery is required for a long-lasting and thorough solution to your pain, we will accommodate your schedule and pick a good date for surgery

Post-op recovery is simple and painfree

Our promise to you is that you’ll walk out of surgery on the same day, with a plan and path towards once again using your hands as they were designed to be used. We will create a comprehensive plan for physical therapy and recovery to bring you back to moving freely. 

Your wrist pain could be
gone for good

Get in touch with us today to book your first appointment to determine the nature of your wrist pain and discuss your diagnosis, as well as the possibility of a carpal tunnel release. We would be excited to explain in greater detail how the procedure works, why it might be a good fit for you and why we are confident in its effectiveness. And of course, if surgery isn't the best course of care for your wrist pain, we will be the first to recommend another treatment plan that is better for your needs.
