Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Surgery

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is characterized by pain, tingling and numbness in the hands that often is worse at night, worse with the arm elevated such as when driving a car or a motorcycle and worse after increased activity levels. The diagnosis of CTS can largely be made on the basis of a good history and physical exam. However, to obtain an accurate baseline of the function of the median nerve and to better predict ones prognosis after CT surgery a tests called electromyography and nerve conduction studies should be done. Treatment options for CTS range from splints for mild CTS to injections for temporizing relief to surgery for complete relief. Surgery, whether through a mini open or endoscopic approach is very quick to recovery from. Patients who work in an office can return to work the next day, while laborers typically take three to four weeks to return to full activities.
