Carpal Tunnel Release
Patients who suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and do not respond to bracing and conservative measures will benefit from Carpal Tunnel Release. At Spine and Orthopedic Center of New Mexico, we offer a less invasive surgical solution. The surgery involves an incision that is less then an inch long made over the palm of the hand under local anesthesia an
d sedation. The procedure takes around 15 to 20 minutes after which the patient will recover and go home within a few hours. The patient is encouraged to use their hand immediately after the surgery — no bracing is needed. Typically, there is significant improvement after the procedure with a reduction in pain and an improvement of the numbness and tingling in the hand. Patients may experience residual numbness due to permanent nerve damage. Call us for more information at Roswell Office Phone Number 575-623-9101.
