Hand surgery is very delicate and complex procedure due to the presence of vessels and nerves. This is the reason why it must be performed only by competent professionals. Our surgeons who practice this surgery take utmost good care of hand muscles and the different injuries they may face.
Pathologies of the hand:
Carpal tunnel treatment
The carpal tunnel treatment is performed under endoscopy. In most cases, this procedure is the one considered. Not only does it prevent the palm of the hand from opening, but it also ensures faster recovery.
Before the intervention
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that results in a tingling sensation in the entire hand. It is usually accompanied by pain that goes up along the arms.
This pathology is, most of the time, caused by intense manual activities. However, it is necessary to obtain a medical opinion confirmed by a medical examination: the Electromyogram. Depending on the results, you may consider several solutions:
- Wearing a wrist brace. Worn at night, it will alter the tingling sensation in the hands.
- A hand surgery that will get rid of the pathology.
- Cortisone infiltration into the wrist. It will help delay surgery for a few months or years.
During the intervention
The purpose of hand surgery is to get rid of the discomfort caused by carpal tunnel syndrome. The nerve is released through the section of a ligament. This procedure is performed under endoscopy to lighten the procedure. This will help you to quickly recover your hand’s functions.
After the surgery
Recovery is very fast. Indeed, the pain disappears rather quickly, and you will not have to spend the night at the clinic. Also, you will be able to check out immediately after the surgery. Depending on the type of professional activity you are engaged in, a work leave may be necessary for a period of 2 days to 1 month. Neither immobilization nor rehabilitation of the hand is necessary.
