Endoscopic carpal tunnel release is a cutting-edge surgical procedure offered at HSA to effectively treat carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). This innovative technique allows our skilled surgeons to alleviate the pressure on the median nerve, providing much-needed relief from the symptoms of CTS through a minimally invasive approach.
The endoscopic carpal tunnel release procedure
Our experienced surgeons use a small, thin tube with a camera (endoscope) and specialized instruments to access and release the carpal tunnel's transverse ligament during the endoscopic carpal tunnel release. This ligament forms the tunnel's roof and puts pressure on the median nerve when it becomes thickened or inflamed.
The endoscopic approach offers several advantages over traditional open surgery. The procedure requires only one or two small incisions, resulting in minimal scarring and faster healing. Furthermore, the endoscope provides a clear view of the carpal tunnel's internal structures, allowing for precise and targeted release of the transverse ligament and relieving the pressure on the median nerve.
