Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

About Your Care and Condition

If you have carpal tunnel syndrome, you know the symptoms of tingling and pain in your hand. If your job or daily life are suffering, please let us take a look. Our orthopedic experts will assess the severity and might recommend simple treatments to bring you relief. If yours is advanced, our surgeons who specialize in carpal tunnel repair can make "pain free" possible.

The carpal tunnel is a narrow, rigid sheath of ligament and bones at the base of the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve gets squeezed in the tunnel. The pressure causes weakness, pain and numbness in the wrist and hand. Women get carpal tunnel syndrome three times more than men. Untreated, permanent nerve damage can result.
