What are the treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome in the early stages can be treated by simple remedies like taking more rest, applying ice compression.Using a splint or taking anti-inflammatory medication also helps in relieving the symptoms.However, if the symptoms are very severe, it is best to undergo a simple surgery.

How is endoscopic surgery done for carpal tunnel syndrome?

In this procedure, an endoscope which is a thin tube with a camera is used to perform the surgery. The surgery is performed referring to the image that the camera shows on a screen.

Flow of the procedure:

  • Patient is given general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia for the procedure

  • A small incision is made to insert the endoscope

  • Observing the image on the screen from the camera, a ligament is cut to release pressure from the median nerve

  • The incision is stitched after the procedure is done

What are the risks involved in endoscopic treatment?

There are very less complications through this treatment. Some of the risks may be:

  • Anaesthesia risks

  • Bleeding

  • Nerve injury

  • Injury to nearby blood vessels

  • Infection

How is open surgery done for carpal tunnel syndrome?

This procedure involves opening up the wrist to expose the ligaments and median nerve. Due to the large incision, the healing time is longer.

Flow of the procedure:

  • Patient is given general anaesthesia for the procedure

  • A large 2-inch incision is made at the wrist

  • The ligament putting pressure on the median nerve is cut

  • The incision is stitched up and thick bandages are put on the wrist

What is the recovery time for open surgery?

It takes 1- 2 weeks to recover from open surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome.

What are the risks involved in the treatment?

  • Bleeding

  • Nerve injury

What care should I take after carpal tunnel surgery?

Overusing the hand for a few months after the surgery is not advisable. Applying ice pack to the hand also helps in faster recovery. Wearing a wrist brace or hand splint also helps.

You will have a heavy bandage from the surgery which will be removed after about 2 weeks. However, complete recovery will take about 6 weeks.
