Carpal Tunnel Surgery:
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition in which the nerve (median nerve) which supplies the thumb, index, middle, and half of the ring finger is compressed, resulting in numbness and tingling. Through a small incision (about 2 cm), the transverse carpal tunnel ligament, (a band of tissue compressing the nerve) is visualized and cut, taking the compression off of the nerve.

Trigger finger is a painful condition that causes the fingers or thumb to catch or lock in a flexed (bent) position. The tendon that bends the finger becomes caught on the other side of a small sheath that surrounds the tendon, which creates the catching and locking symptoms. Through a small incision (about 1 cm) at the end of the palm, the sheath is visualized and cut, allowing the tendon to move freely.

DeQuervain’s disease is a painful inflammatory condition of the tendon that connects to the thumb. There are multiple causes, including injury, overuse, and inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. When conservative efforts (such as NSAIDs, injections, and physical therapy) fail, surgery may be done to alleviate the pain caused by the condition. Through a small incision (about 2 cm) the sheath that surrounds the tendon is visualized and cut allowing the tendon to move freely, thereby decreasing the symptoms.
