Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Surgery At Big Apollo Spectra Hospital

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Surgery, known as carpal tunnel release, is a specialized procedure conducted at Big Apollo Spectra Hospital, Patna, to address the discomfort and pain arising from carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition arises due to heightened pressure on the median nerve within the wrist, causing weakness and discomfort in the hand.


Purpose of the Procedure:

When symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome manifest, nonsurgical treatments are initially employed by the medical team at Big Apollo Spectra, Patna. These approaches include anti-inflammatory medications, wrist splints, therapeutic exercises, corticosteroid injections into the carpal tunnel, and ergonomic adjustments to workspace. Should these interventions prove ineffective, the physician may employ an electromyogram (EMG) to assess the electrical activity of the median nerve. If the diagnosis confirms carpal tunnel syndrome and nerve impingement leading to muscle atrophy, carpal tunnel release surgery is recommended.

Associated Risks:

Similar to any surgical procedure, carpal tunnel release surgery carries inherent risks, including:

        Possible infection
        Potential bleeding
        Allergic reactions to anaesthesia or medications
        Risk of nerve injury, including the median nerve and its branches
        Numbness and weakness around the hand
        Potential harm to other blood vessels
        Scar sensitivity

Preparation for the Procedure:

Prior to the surgery, specific preparations are necessary:

        Disclose all medications, including prescribed, over-the-counter, herbal, and supplement substances to your doctor.
        Temporarily discontinue blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen.
        Seek guidance from your doctor regarding medication intake on the surgery day.
        Suspend smoking, as it can impede the healing process.
        Inform your physician about any ongoing illnesses, flu, fever, cold, or herpes outbreaks. If unwell, the surgery may be postponed.
        Abstain from food and drink for 6 to 12 hours before the surgery. If medication is necessary, consume it with a small sip of water.
        Arrange for transportation after the procedure and ensure punctuality.

Treatment Procedure:

Carpal tunnel release is performed on an outpatient basis, obviating the need for extended hospital stay. At Big Apollo Spectra, Patna, the hand is anesthetized locally. An incision is made from the palm's midpoint to the wrist base. The skin edges are opened to expose the carpal ligament, which is delicately divided to safeguard the nerves and tendons underneath. A precise incision within the ligament grants access to the carpal tunnel, facilitating the release of the median nerve. The incision is then closed using sutures. 

For individuals seeking respite from carpal tunnel syndrome, the surgical team at Big Apollo Spectra Hospital, Patna, ensures a procedure designed to alleviate discomfort and enhance hand functionality.
