Endoscopic Carpel Tunnel Release

What is Endoscopic Carpel Tunnel Release? 

Endoscopic carpel tunnel release is a surgical procedure that releases the transverse carpel ligament, releasing pressure on the median nerve, relieving the carpel tunnel syndrome symptoms.

How is Endoscopic Carpel Tunnel Release Performed? 

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 allows Dr. Mohemani to see structures in the wrist, such as the transverse carpal ligament, without opening the area with a large incision.

The cutting tools used in endoscopic surgery are very tiny. The cutting tools 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.

During endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery, the transverse carpal ligament is cut, releasing pressure on the median nerve, relieving carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms.

The small incisions in the palm are closed with stitches. The gap where the ligament was cut will eventually fill with scar tissue.
