Carpal Tunnel Surgery is one of a wide and comprehensive range of procedures performed at Carpal Tunnel Surgery Los Angeles. It offers fast, convenient, effective and high quality hand surgery for all patients. For some hand conditions surgery is unnecessary, but for others surgery relieves pain and improves the use of the hand. It may also improve the hand’s appearance. The carpal tunnel syndrome can arise for no obvious reason, particularly in mid-life. The carpal tunnel lies at the level of the wrist and contains tendonsinvolved in the movement of the fingers. It also contains the median nerve which supplies the muscles that move the thumb and gives sensation to it. In the carpal tunnel syndrome, the median nerve becomes squeezed when the contents of the carpal tunnel become swollen. This can be caused by the accumulation of fat or fluid in the tunnel. Although diuretics and steroid injections may be used to alleviate the condition, surgery is needed if the symptoms persist. Surgery is usually carried out under local anesthesia and aims to decompress the nerve by relieving the pressure on it.
