The first signs of carpal tunnel syndrome are numbness, tingling, pain and aches in the thumb and first three fingers of the hand and forearm.
If untreated, this pain will begin to radiate up the arm to the neck and shoulder and can severely disrupt work, play, and sleep.
The pain arises when the nerve that leads to the thumb and first three fingers begins to swell with overuse, causing it to press against the firm transverse carpal ligament.
This pain is frequently misdiagnosed by doctors. As a result, patients can find themselves bouncing from one specialist to another without results.
Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The Renova Hand Centers believe in a personal approach to pain diagnosis and treatment. That is why our fellowship-trained specialists walk every patient through each step of the process of pain relief. We begin with a comprehensive electro diagnostic study to pinpoint the exact location of the nerve compression. Once identified, our rehabilitation specialists will guide patients through a full range of conservative treatment options. If our physiatrists determine that you may need to undergo carpal tunnel release surgery, they will refer you to our staff of fellowship-trained hand surgeons for relief from your condition.
* After conservative measures have been exhausted, our doctors meet with the patients to discuss the AccuCision® procedure
Beyond Minimally Invasive
AccuCision’s micro-invasive methods make it the most advanced carpal tunnel release procedure available. AccuCision greatly reduces restricted use of the hands by preserving tissue surrounding the transverse carpal ligament. The procedure often takes only minutes and the hand regains unrestricted use in seven days, resulting in a recovery two to three times shorter than any of the “minimally invasive” methods that are currently practiced.
