Carpal Tunnel Surgery in Greensboro, NC
Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center offers Carpal Tunnel Surgery to residents of Greensboro, NC. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful condition that is caused when nerves or tendons in your wrist become pinched. Many pronounced symptoms appear soon after, and include pain, tingling and numbness in the hand, fingers, or wrists. The disorder affects an opening in the wrist, known as the carpal tunnel, which allows nerves and tendons to cross over from the forearm. When the tunnel swells due to inflammation, or from leaving the wrists in a bent position for extended amounts of time, symptoms begin to appear, and even more damage can result if left untreated.
Fortunately, residents of Greensboro, NC can schedule a consult with Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center to discuss their available treatment options. Carpal Tunnel Surgery may be the best choice to relieve the built up pressure, on the wrist’s nerves, by enlarging the carpal tunnel area to give the nerves ample space. Carpal Tunnel Surgery is minimally invasive and works by cutting the top of the tunnel so that normal functioning can return to your wrist. Recovering from Carpal Tunnel Surgery may take anywhere from several weeks to a few months, which is why it’s important to exercise the area as often as possible to speed the healing process. By scheduling a consultation, you can find out if Carpal Tunnel Surgery is right for you.
