Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release: This surgery is typically done with one or two small incisions in the hand. A scope with a small camera attached is inserted into one of the incisions and tools are inserted into the other incision. While watching a video screen, the surgeon releases the transverse carpal tunnel ligament, which relieves pressure on the median nerve. You can typically return to normal use of the hand more quickly with an endoscopic procedure versus open carpal tunnel release. Dr. Caliste Hsu performs endoscopic tunnel release. If you are having hand or wrist pain, contact Miller Orthopaedic and request an appointment with Dr. Hsu.
