Global Cost Generally Lower Higher Moderate

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. The condition occurs when one of the major nerves in the hand—the median nerve—is compressed as it travels through the wrist. The median nerve controls movement in the thumb and feeling in the thumb and first three fingers. It runs down the arm and forearm, passes through the carpal tunnel at the wrist, and goes into the hand.Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. The condition occurs when one of the major nerves in the hand—the median nerve—is compressed as it travels through the wrist. The median nerve controls movement in the thumb and feeling in the thumb and first three fingers. It runs down the arm and forearm, passes through the carpal tunnel at the wrist, and goes into the hand.

  • Numbness, tingling, burning, and pain in the thumb and index, middle, and ring fingers.
  • Occasional shock-like sensations that radiate to the thumb and index, middle, and ring fingers.
  • Pain or tingling that may travel up the forearm toward the shoulder.
  • Weakness in the hand.

Non-surgical treatments.
Some people with mild symptoms of CTS find relief with directed home care programs. In some cases, exercises, stretching, avoiding activities that cause symptoms, or wearing a wrist splint can provide some degree of relief. Medications or corticosteroid injections may also be recommended. Unfortunately, the relief is often just temporary.

Surgical options
More severe cases of CTS may be treated surgically through carpal tunnel release (CTR). Opening the transverse carpal ligament relieves pressure on the median nerve, reducing or eliminating the pain, numbness and tingling that can plague CTS suffers. Although often effective in reducing the symptoms associated with CTS, traditionally surgery may require long recovery times, post-operative physical therapy and permanent and sometimes painful scars.

Or, there is a minimally invasive approach.
Carpal tunnel release with ultrasound guidance can relieve the symptoms of CTS while reducing recovery time. Most patients can return to work and the activities they love in 3-6 days.

After the procedure, you’ll be able to resume activities as tolerated. Most patients will have immediate motion so they can focus on getting back to their lives and the activities they love within 3-6 days.

  • Most patients are pleasantly surprised at how simple carpal tunnel release is with UltraGuideCTR™ and real-time ultrasound guidance. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia in office and there is only a small incision made in the wrist. Most patients find pain minimal. On a scale of 0 to 10 (0=No Pain; 10=Worst Possible Pain), patients had an average pain rating of 1.52 out of 10.

Carpal tunnel release is generally covered by commercial insurance and Medicare.  Patient payment responsibility will vary based upon your benefit plan established by your insurance carrier and the “site of service” of the procedure. Check with your insurance carrier and care provider, prior to any medical services, to verify your financial responsibility.
