One of the more common disorders of the hand is carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a narrowing of the median nerve canal which, in addition to impairing hand function, often also triggers searing pain. Those affected report sleepless nights and sensory disturbances as well as an increasing lack of strength. Thanks to the most modern diagnostic facilities available at medalp, treatment can begin immediately after diagnosis. Once the suspicion of carpal tunnel syndrome has been confirmed by a nerve conduction velocity measurement or a nerve ultrasound, the pressure on the nerve should be relieved quickly to prevent permanent damage. In severe cases or with long-lasting complaints, only surgery can help. With our modern, minimally invasive technique the operation only takes about 20 minutes. The compressed median nerve is released, and the mechanical pressure is removed from the nerve. The hand can be used for everyday activities again immediately after the operation. From the first appointment through to diagnosis, day clinic and comprehensive rehabilitation and training programmes, our professionals at medalp ensure the fastest possible recovery of the hand.
