Carpal tunnel syndrome happens when tissues swell within the wrist and compress on the median nerve, causing pain, numbness and tingling from the fingers down the forearm. Your doctor may recommend orthopedic surgery for carpal tunnel if your pain has persisted for more than six months and nonsurgical approaches, such as splints or physical therapy, haven’t worked.
At Riverview Health, we have a board certified orthopedic surgeon in Carmel, IN, who specializes in carpal tunnel surgery. Whether you have carpal tunnel from playing tennis or from typing, our team at New Hope Orthopedics & Sports Medicine can treat your symptoms and get you back to enjoying activities free of pain.
During the procedure, your orthopedic surgeon will cut part of the carpal ligament to remove pressure from the median nerve. In some cases, this procedure can be a minimally invasive surgery, which usually involves less pain and a shorter recovery time.
The skilled staff and surgeons at New Hope Orthopedics & Sports Medicine are also available at their location in Noblesville.
