Carpal tunnel release is a surgical procedure involving cutting through the ligament that’s putting pressure on the median nerve. This is a necessary procedure after nonsurgical treatments have been exhausted without significant improvements to the function of the hand.
Following carpal tunnel release, the patient will have to wear a splint or bandage on the wrist for a period of two weeks. Our orthopedic doctor usually asks patients to undergo physical therapy as soon as the stitches from the surgery are removed.
