If you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, your orthopaedic doctor may
recommend surgery. This type of orthopaedic surgery can ease the pressure
on the nerve that is causing your symptoms.
Watch this video to learn more about carpal tunnel repair surgery. During
the procedure, your orthopaedic surgeon will give you a local anesthetic
or nerve block along with a sedative for your comfort. After surgery,
you will need to wear a splint to prevent your wrist from moving as you heal.
