Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is due to compression or damage of nerves in the wrist. Patients often present with numbness in their hand and fingers. Patients may complain of waking up in the middle of the night and shaking their hands may help improve symptoms. As symptoms progress, you may experience weakness and clumsiness resulting in often dropping objects.
Conservative treatments include physical therapy and wrist brace. If conservative treatments fail, our surgeons can perform an outpatient surgery to remove pressure off the nerve.
