Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes numbness, tingling, and pain in the hand and forearm. The condition occurs when one of the major nerves to the hand the median nerve is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the wrist.

In most patients, carpal tunnel syndrome gets worse over time. If it is not treated in time, it can lead to permanent dysfunction of the hand.There could be loss of sensation in the fingers and weakness.

Early symptoms can often be relieved with simple measures like:

Wearing a wrist splint while sleeping

Exercises to keep the nerve mobile

Avoiding certain activities that aggravate your symptoms

A steroid injection into the carpal tunnel

If these steps do not help then surgery to take pressure off the median nerve may be recommended for some patients.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the tunnel becomes narrowed or when the tissue surrounding the flexor tendons (known as synovium) swells, putting pressure on the median nerve and reducing its blood supply. This abnormal pressure on the nerve can result in numbness, tingling, pain, and weakness in the hand.

After the clinical examination Dr K S Anand at Anand Hospital, Purnia may recommend tests like NCV, EMG, X-Ray, Ultrasound or MRI of the wrist. First non-surgical treatments like bracing or splinting alongwith anti-inflammtory medicines are tried. Certain exercises and steroid injections may also help in relieving the symptoms. However if the non-surgical treatments do not give the desired results then surgery is the only option. The surgical procedure performed at Anand Hospital, Purnia for carpal tunnel syndrome is called a carpal tunnel release.

Most surgeons perform this procedure using one of two different surgical techniques, but the goal of both is to relieve pressure on your median nerve by cutting the ligament that forms the roof of the tunnel (transverse carpal ligament). Release of this ligament increases the size of the tunnel and decreases pressure on the median nerve, allowing for appropriate blood flow to the nerve and function of the nerve.

Best Doctors and Cost

Dr KS Anand has more than 20 years of experience in treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome both non-surgically and through surgery. He has been successfully doing the carpal tunnel release surgery. He is one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the Seemanchal region when it comes to treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

In most of the cases this surgery is done during a short stay at the hospital of few hours or overnight. The surgery can be done as an open surgery or through Arthroscope. The cost of the surgery is in the range of Rs. 75 - 90 thousand only. The results of both types of surgery are similar but the recovery in arthroscopic surgery is quicker. You may have to wear a splint or wrist brace for several weeks after surgery. You will be allowed to use your hand for light activities, taking care to avoid significant discomfort. Driving, self-care activities, and light lifting and gripping may be permitted soon after surgery.
