Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common hand problem affecting people today. This condition is marked by impaired hand function, pain, tingling and numbness.Corrective surgery, a procedure called “carpal tunnel release” is done to relieve pressure that builds up within the carpal tunnel. By releasing the tissue that is pressing on the lower hand and wrist nerves, the procedure can help to relieve pain, tingling and numbness. This requires an incision from the mid-palm to wrist.
Rheumatoid arthritis can deform finger joints and force the fingers into a bent position that hampers movement. Splints or physical therapy can help, but corrective surgery offers the best solution for many patients. Surgeons can remove tissue from inflamed joints, reposition tendons, or implant artificial joints. While your hand may not regain its full use, you can generally expect a significant improvement in function and appearance.
