Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

A Long-Term, Lasting Solution

There are millions of people who experience sharp, shooting pains in their wrists and through their arms. This can interrupt your ability to do your job or even affect everyday activities. If you are tired of the discomfort, you may want to consider carpal tunnel release surgery at our miVIP Las Vegas center.

There are small bones in your fingers that are called “carpal bones.” Nerves travel through the carpel tunnel, which extends from your forearm and into the palm of your hand. Those nerves and the tendons that run alongside them can become inflamed, which causes you that pain or even tingling or numbness in your hands and wrists. That is where our team and step in and help.

How Does It Work?

Many people will first turn to non-invasive methods to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, such as medications or certain exercises. However, if your symptoms are not responding to these methods, you might want to consider minimally invasive carpal tunnel release surgery.

This is a common outpatient procedure in which the area around your carpal tunnel will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Your surgeon will make very small incisions in your wrist and palm and insert a tiny camera to view the tissues. Through cutting a ligament in the tunnel, the pressure on your nerve will be released, thus relieving your symptoms.

The Surgeons at miVIP

While carpal tunnel release surgery is one of the most common surgeries in America, our staff at miVIP specializes in the procedure, with some of our doctors so experienced that they teach other physicians about it. All of our surgeons are board certified, which means you are in fully-qualified, capable hands.

Your Recovery

Following your procedure, the physician will wrap your hand and elevate it. You may experience some slight pain or even numbness, but that should subside within a few days or months of your procedure. Your doctor will instruct you to limit the use of your hand for a few months following carpal tunnel release surgery so you can regain full strength. Within a few weeks, the stitches in your hand will be removed.

Cost of the Procedure

Our team at miVIP will work with you to determine how your insurance will cover the cost of your surgery. We accept most forms of either PPO or POS insurance policies. If you have questions, you can always call one of our friendly representatives for assistance.

Other Important Information

Traditional methods of surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome include using large incisions in your palm. The minimally invasive approach our physicians at miVIP take with carpal tunnel release surgery means you will have:

  • Less scarring
  • Minimized risk of infection
  • Less bleeding
  • Less pain after your operation

More women than men actually experience carpal tunnel syndrome because their tunnels are typically smaller. It is important to note any symptoms you are having and discuss them with your physician to determine if you are a good candidate for surgery. It is possible that after an operation, your symptoms may return. However, many patients find they have long-term relief from the procedure.
