Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the median nerve becomes squashed as it passes into the hand through a “U” shaped collection of bones straddled by a tight ligamentight space in the wrist, known as the carpal tunnel. Surgery for Carpal Tunnel involves cutting the ligament over the tunnel to relieve the pressure on the nerve. If left untreated the nerve can gradually wither causing permanent loss of sensation and wasting of thumb muscles. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be very uncomfortable and difficult to live with, symptoms include: -Pain in your fingers, hands or arm. -Numbness in the thumb, index and middle finger. -Tingling or pins and needles. -Weakness and difficulty with grip. -Wasting of the muscles at the base of the thumb. CTR surgery is available with the NHS, but unfortunately, due to high demand, limited resources, and a backlog from the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s likely you will need to wait longer than the guideline of 18 weeks for surgery compared to self-pay options. Surgery offers the best chance of short and long term relief compared to other forms of treatment. Consultation costs £150.
