The Carpal Tunnel Experts of Houston
There is nothing new about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It has plagued people from all walks of life for generations. While there has been treatment available for Carpal Tunnel through the Open Release surgery, this traditional approach is riddled with painful post-operative issues.
There is now a new innovative and proven technique that effectively minimizes recovery time with proven results. The advent of the minimally invasive endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release, utilized by the Hand Specialists at NuAdvance Hand Center, has revolutionized the way that Carpal Tunnel is treated, with patients using their hand the very next day and returning to work quickly.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a pinched median nerve at the wrist that may cause:
- Numbness and tingling of fingers
- Clumsiness and weak pinch or grip
- Aching and pain in your hand or forearm that radiates to your shoulder or neck
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
