Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is the second most common nerve compression that occurs in the upper extremity. To accommodate the large population of patients who suffer from the condition, Renova doctors use AccuCision to treat this very common problem. As with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome
is a condition in which the nerve becomes compressed by surrounding tissue and bone, and causes the patient discomfort, tingling and numbness that can extend all the way into the little and ring fingers. Renova surgeons use AccuCision to offer patients a micro-invasive alternative to outdated methods of Cubital Tunnel Release.
No More Restless Nights
The compression of the median nerve causes shooting pain in the arm, shoulder, and the neck. This pain is most evident when sleeping. One of the first symptoms people with CuTS, or any other nerve-related condition, notice is restless nights caused by sharp, shooting pain.
With the AccuCision procedure, patients will regain their sleep, uninhibited by nerve pain, the same night.
Cubital Tunnel Release: Then and Now
With conventional methods of Cubital Tunnel release, doctors were required to make an incision that spanned across up to 15cm (6 inches) of the patient’s elbow. Not only did this require considerable amount of stitching following surgery, but doctors were only able to access the compressive tissue along this incision. With the AccuCision method, Renova doctors have access to nearly 30 cm of compressive tissue along the ulnar nerve, and can do so with no more than a 2cm incision on the elbow. AccuCision’s smaller incision size means a faster return to life, and patients can regain unrestricted use of the affected elbow in as little as 1 week.
