Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common nerve compression disorder treated by hand surgeons. It is manifested by tingling of the fingers, finger numbness, hand numbness, hand pain, wrist and forearm pain, and in severe cases, muscle atrophy of the hand. There are many factors that can contribute to the development of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Appropriate and timely carpal tunnel treatment can prevent the development of permanent disability. Conservative treatment may be sufficient for carpal tunnel relief, however many patients eventually require carpal tunnel surgery. The goal of carpal tunnel surgery is to prevent progression by decreasing pressure on the median nerve at the wrist.
As a fellowship trained and board certified orthopedic surgeon, specializing in hand to shoulder surgery, I treat traumatic, acute, and chronic orthopedic conditions of the upper extremity. I am deeply committed to caring for my patients the same way I would care for my family. In my practice, patient care and satisfaction are of utmost importance, and I pride myself with an unparalleled attentiveness to my patients and to the art of orthopedic surgery.
