WHAT IS CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a disorder where one of the main nerves which supplies the hand (the median nerve), which gives sensation to the thumb, index and middle fingers, becomes squashed as it passes through the wrist (in the carpal tunnel) from the forearm into the palm.
ABOUT MR KURER
Mr Michael Kurer is a Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon in practice in both the NHS at North Middlesex University Hospital and privately in North London. He trained at University College London School of Medicine and at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
He has been a consultant for over 20 years.
This surgery can be done without stopping warfarin treatment. The local anaesthetic used means that bleeding is not a problem
Removable stitches are used and these are taken out after 14 days
There are patients where both hands are affected who wonder whether they can have both hands operated on at once because that means that after a few weeks, both are recovered.
The simple answer is ‘yes’, but Mr Kurer recommends that there is help at home for a few days.
