Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release Paired with Virtual Reality

Our patient suffered over two years with pain and numbness due to median nerve compression. A simple 5-10 minute procedure using wide awake virtual reality helped this patient regain function in her hand.

Benefits of Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release (ECTR):

Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release

Smaller Incision: ECTR involves a smaller incision compared to OCTR, typically about half an inch or less. This results in less post-operative scarring and potentially faster healing.

Minimal Soft Tissue Disruption: ECTR involves less disruption of surrounding soft tissues, which can lead to reduced post-operative pain and a quicker return to normal activities.

Faster Recovery: Patients who undergo ECTR may experience a quicker recovery compared to OCTR, with many being able to resume light activities and work within a shorter period.

Lower Risk of Infection: Smaller incisions in ECTR may reduce the risk of surgical site infections.
