Dr. Loredo Featured on Great Day San Antonio

Dr. Pedro Loredo of Renova Hand Centers recently appeared on San Antonio’s popular morning news show, Great Day San Antonio. He was joined by a patient who received surgery from him last year. The topic of the morning was carpal tunnel syndrome.“Patients complain that they can’t sleep at night…They come in in tears to the office because it hurts so badly,” revealed Dr. Loredo. Carpal tunnel syndrome starts in the wrist, but as cases worsen, the pain is rarely localized. “It can radiate all the way up the arm and shoulder,” Dr. Loredo explained. “It’s very devastating.”

Patients complain that they can’t sleep at night…They come in in tears to the office because it hurts so badly.” Technology and the role it plays in the modern work environment isn’t helping matters. According to Dr. Loredo, devices like computers, ipads, and phones simply add to the repetitive movement of our hands and contribute to the pain. His patient, Yvonne agreed.“I’ve been typing and doing office management for thirteen years,” said Yvonne. Her job was exacerbating a painful case of carpal tunnel syndrome. “I was taking Tylenol or Aleve so I could just go to bed and have a good night rest…At the last minute, [the pain] was all the way up the arm.” Eventually, Yvonne visited Dr. Loredo at Renova Hand Centers. “I finally had [surgery] done on December 31st of last year. It’s been five months and it’s been pain free,” she said.Dr. Loredo said that while conservative methods of treatment can help carpal tunnel syndrome, cases like Yvonne’s require more. When surgical intervention is needed, the doctors at Renova Hand Centers use a procedure known as AccuCisionTM. “[The procedure] involves tiny little incisions, about as big as a grain of rice,” he explained. “We put a canula inside the actual carpal tunnel. Then we use a little blade to cut that ligament and get the pressure off the nerve to allow the nerve to heal itself.”

“We try to return patients to their daily activities as soon as possible. Because you want to hold your baby, you want to hold your loved one’s hand.” Because AccuCisionTM is a micro-invasive procedure, the healing process is quick. Dr. Loredo explained, “We put you in a splint for about a week…After that you can use your hand and basically do whatever you want.” The speed of the healing process fits perfectly with the mission of Renova’s hand surgeons. “We try to return patients to their daily activities as soon as possible,” shared Dr. Loredo. “Because you want to hold your baby, you want to hold your loved one’s hand.”To learn more about how the doctors at Renova can help patients overcome carpal tunnel syndrome, check out our page on the AccuCisionTM procedure.
