How We DO Carpal Tunnel Surgery
There is a section in the wrist termed the carpal tunnel, the tunnel holds nine tendons and median nerve that reaches from the forearm to the hand. Swelling in the tunnel places pressure on the nerve, hence causing carpal tunnel syndrome.
Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
- Inflammation of the lining of the flexor tendons
- Fluid build-up, common with pregnancies
- Joint dislocations
