Great questions Dana, we thank you for reaching out. First, it is important to understand that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a chronic hand condition that reoccurs in over 90% of patients even after a successful Carpal Tunnel Surgery. So, there is no permanent fix for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome for most people.

Secondly, the Carpal Tunnel Symptoms usually come back within 6 months to 8 years. Frankly the benefits of Carpal Tunnel Surgery are too short lived to justify the risks, downtime and the potential complications associated with scar tissue formation.
The first surgical procedure has a success rate of about 50 – 60% based on patient surveys that are taken shortly after surgery, before most people realize that the annoying, frustrating and painful symptoms are going to return. Once people experience reoccurring Carpal Tunnel Symptoms, their willingness to count the procedure successful is significantly reduced.

Carpal Tunnel Symptoms Get Worse Immediately After Surgery for 5 to 7 percent of people

Second surgeries have a success rate based on patient surveys of 35 – 40%. Third surgeries should not be performed on the same hand based on recommendations from Medical Text Books.

So, the question looms:

Why go down the Carpal Tunnel Surgery path if the condition comes back within 1 to 8 years?

For almost any condition, surgery is considered a last resort because of the risks, downtime and potential complications.

For Carpal Tunnel Surgery, there is added urgency in making a Surgical Procedure a last resort option.

This is due to following logic:

  1. 1

    The relative short-term nature of the benefits of a surgical procedure (6 months to 8 years).

  2. 2

    The risks of a poor outcome (5% to 7% of people have worse symptoms after surgery)

  3. 3

    More than 40% of Patients are unhappy with their 1st Surgery.

  4. 4

    The complications associated with repeat Carpal Tunnel Surgeries.

  5. 5

    The formation of scar tissue.

  6. 6

    The downtime and relatively long rehabilitation periods post Carpal Tunnel Surgery.

  7. 7

    More than 60% of people are unhappy with second Surgeries.

  8. 8

    Medical Schools recommend against 3rd Surgical Procedures.

  9. 9

    There are much less invasive treatment modalities that have a clinically documented high success rate and have no downtime and no risks.
