Considering Surgical Treatment
Transcript

When it has been confirmed that carpal tunnel syndrome is the source of your complaints and the nerve tests confirm that it's no longer mild, but has now become moderate or severe, that's the time to consider surgical treatment. Nonsurgical options such as ultrasound, acupuncture, and physical therapy can help to minimize symptoms, but they do not provide a cure. The only cure for carpal tunnel syndrome is surgical treatment. Surgery is typically an outpatient procedure, is minimally invasive, and leads to resolution of symptoms in a short period of time.
