Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is one of the most common neuropathies. We use an innovative minimally invasive technique, which is very precise and safe and allows patients to go home the same day of the treatment, with no need for hospitalization.
Endoscopic surgery uses a thin, flexible tube with a camera attached (endoscope). The endoscope is guided through a small incision in the wrist (single-portal technique) or at the wrist and palm (two-portal technique). The endoscope lets the doctor see structures in the wrist, such as the transverse carpal ligament, without opening the entire area with a large incision.
The cutting tools used in endoscopic surgery are very tiny. They, also, are inserted through the small incisions in the wrist or wrist and palm. In the single-portal technique, one small tube contains both the camera and a cutting tool.
