People often hear that Carpal Tunnel Surgery is quick and easy to perform, implying that it is no big deal. From a surgeon’s perspective, that is true.
A Carpal Tunnel Release Surgical Procedure generally takes less than 30 minutes and the incision does not need to penetrate deep into the body to sever the Transverse Carpal Ligament.
For a Surgeon, it is one of the simplest procedures to perform. It can be done as an “out-patient” procedure, so you do not have to spend the night in the hospital. From that perspective, it is relatively simple.
However, from a patient’s perspective, you might say not so fast.
