Carpal Tunnel Surgery

Carpal Tunnel Surgery is done under twilight anesthesia. The drugs cause temporary amnesia, so it feels like one has been completely knocked out. Even though general anesthesia is not administered, when the patient awakes they cannot remember any of the events that have taken place during the surgery. Through an incision on the wrist, the carpal ligament is severed to relieve the pressure on the median nerve – Hence, the phrase “Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery”. The incision is sutured closed with the expectation that the ligament tissue will scar back together over several months leaving more space.

Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery Severs the Ligament

Cost of surgery and rehabilitation is in the range of $5,000 to $10,000 with some improvement achieved in over 70% of cases. Full restoration is achieved in less than 60% of surgeries. Downtime and rehabiliation generally range from six weeks to three months, but can take over a year, depending on how many lingering symptoms result and the degree of scar tissue formation as this primary ligament in the hand heals back together. Scar tissue formation during recovery from surgery is unpredictable and sometimes results in less space in this narrow anatomical passage of the wrist after the carpal tunnel surgical procedure, causing even more discomfort and numbness after surgery. This complication is only reported in less than 15% of surgical procedures.

It is common for people recovering from the carpal tunnel surgical procedure to experience some permanent loss of grip strength, a perduring loss of lifting strength in the wrist/forearm, a nagging loss of full range of motion of the hand and wrist after surgery and lingering tenderness at the incision. This is due to severing the Transverse Carpal Ligament and then relying on this important ligament at the base of the hand to scar or heal back together. The purpose of the Transverse Carpal Ligament is to wrap around the hand and wrist and helps hold the many small bones of the hand and wrist securely together (article is continued below).

There are over 27 bones in the hand and wrist nested together in a careful combination to enable the miraculous dexterity, movement and strength of the hand, fingers and wrists. Since we are born with this remarkable ability, most of us take it for granted that these bones move and work together seamlessly in full range of motion and without complications. These bones are all held together by fascia tissue, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and muscle. The single largest and strongest ligament of the hand, theTransverse Carpal Ligament binds all of these components together. When one considers the number of bones and complicated tight arrangement of blood vessels, nerves, ligaments and soft tissue cushioning and controlling the dexterous movement of these multiple bones, it is no wonder that the act of trying to adjust this remarkable combination by mere mortals often goes awry. Interestingly, it is this important ligament, the Transverse Carpal Ligament, that is severed during the surgical procedure known as Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery.

This is why most medical professionals and insurance companies insist that credible non-invasive therapies are tried before resorting to surgery. Surgery for Carpal Tunnel is considered as a last resort. Contrary to what many people are led to believe, Carpal Tunnel Surgery is not a permanent fix.

Carpal-Tunnel-SurgeryFor this reason, most surgeons require that the patient changes their hand use pattern or addresses the work station ergonomics that may be contributing to repetitive stress at work or at home or insist on a career change, before they will perform a second surgery. Due to the scaring of the carpal ligament, it is not considered good practice to perform carpal tunnel surgery more than twice on the same hand.

Most patients do not have the stamina, time, money, resilience or patience to endure multiple surgeries on the same hand. Also, build-up of scar tissue from repeated cutting of this ligament often risk constricting the tight space in this narrow passage further, contributing to worse CTS symptoms, limiting range of motion and further weakening the grip of the hand and the lifting power of the wrist.

Because of the risks associated with the invasive nature of surgery, most surgeons, neurologists, family physicians, hand therapists, medical insurance companies and healthcare professionals generally advise patients to exhaust clinically documented conservative treatments for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome before considering surgery. The Carpal Solution is one of the best conservative therapies, because it is all natural, bears no risks and can be done in the convenience of home during sleep.

People considering surgery often worry about managing the downtime, the risks of potential complications, lingering symptoms during the recovery from surgery, the likelihood of permanent loss of grip strength in their hand and the loss of range of motion in the hand and wrist after surgery. Rehabilitations can be long, time consuming and painful.

Recovery from Carpal Tunnel Surgery is not as simple as it is sometimes represented.Many people elect not to undergo surgery on their other hand after having it on one hand. With a 60% patient satisfaction rate – it is one of the lowest in healthcare for surgical procedures. Most people want to have at least a 90% plus success rate before taking on the risks, downtime and long rehabilitation associated with almost any surgery.

For a chronic condition brought on by repetitive stress activities and often by metabolic swelling like CTS, it has a high probability of reoccurring. Most people prefer to find a reliable, convenient, safe and natural therapy that does not involve the risks, downtime, expense and the potential for complications of a surgical procedure. Repeating the drama of surgery is just not a pleasant experience for a patient with any condition, especially after one has endured the ramifications of Carpal Tunnel. There is no permanent cure for CTS, even after a successful surgical procedure, the symptoms will likely flare up again in time, if you keep doing the same activities. That is why you need to seek an all natural carpal tunnel treatment that is convenient, safe and has no downtime nor risks associated with it.
