Carpal Tunnel Surgery

Relieve wrist pain caused by Carpal Tunnel in Beverly Hills

Carpal Tunnel Surgery can release the pressure on the inflamed nerve and tendons at the base of the hand and allow better blood supply and improved movement on the hand. During a carpal tunnel surgery, your Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon may make an incision from the middle of your palm to your wrist. During this minimally invasive hand procedure, the median nerve is accessed by inserting a tiny flexible tube with a light and lens (endoscope) through small incisions.

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs from a person’s upper arm into a narrow passageway to the wrist and palm, becomes squeezed, pressed or inflamed. The median nerve controls movement and sensation in the thumb and the first three fingers of the hand, though not the little finger. It also sends nerve signals to control the muscles around the base of the thumb. Irritated tendons can swell and constrict the median nerve in this narrow tunnel. Old injuries such as a broken wrist, swelling caused from diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis, or even water retention in pregnancy can contribute to the crowding of this nerve.

Carpal Tunnel Treatments

A range of treatments for this issue exist. The most basic include nightly splinting, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and ice packs used on the wrist of the affected hand to reduce swelling. Certain exercises supervised by trained occupational therapists can help to build arm strength in those not currently suffering symptoms. Surgical options have become more common. Carpal tunnel release is now one of the most common surgical procedures in the United States. It involves cutting the band of tissue on the palm side of the carpal tunnel, to alleviate the pressure on the median nerve. This surgery is most often performed under local anesthesia, and on an outpatient basis. While this surgery can be performed endoscopically, Dr. Sheila Nazarian and most surgeons prefer an open method with a slightly larger scar to be able to visualize this important nerve. She feels, that in her hands, the open method is reliable and safe. The drawbacks and benefits of carpal tunnel surgery should always be discussed with a doctor. However, done with knowledge and proper treatment, carpal tunnel release surgery can provide lasting relief from the pain, weakness, and stiffness of carpal tunnel syndrome.
