NuAdvance Hand Center
Many recent advances in hand surgery have led to shorter operative times and quicker returns to high levels of activity with the least discomfort and scarring. The doctors at NuAdvance Hand Center are pioneers of minimally invasive endoscopic surgeries and have published techniques and outcome studies in the prestigious Journal of Hand Surgery and Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. You will be in the hands of the most talented and skilled surgeons who utilize state-of-the-art minimally invasive techniques to obtain the best treatment outcome possible.

The Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Release
Open vs. Endoscopic Procedure
While effective, the open carpal tunnel procedure is plagued with post-operative issues such as:
- Lengthy Healing and Recovery time (Months)
- Significant Scarring
- Sometimes Permanently Tender Scars
At NuAdvance Hand Center, we use minimally invasive endoscopic technology that allows for hand use the following day and unrestricted use in seven days.
The benefits of using the endoscopic technique are:
- Procedure Less Than 5 minutes
- No Stitches
- Little to No Pain
- Minimizes the Risk of Permanent Nerve Damage
OPEN VS. ENDOSCOPIC

Cubital Tunnel and Pronator Syndrome
We also use this cutting edge endoscopic technology to treat Cubital Tunnel Syndrome, which is a pinched ulnar nerve at the elbow, and Pronator syndrome, which is a pinched median nerve at the forearm and elbow. This new technique, which was developed by Andrew K. Lee, M.D. et. al., has been published in the Journal of Hand Surgery and has revolutionized the field of minimally invasive peripheral nerve surgeries.

Thumb Arthritis Pain
We have also pioneered the development of CMC Cable Fix, a suspension suture anchor system for the basal thumb arthritis and instability, which reduces the operative time, additional incision scars and possibly earlier recovery time. A research study is now underway to demonstrate the effectiveness of this latest technology.
