Patient Testimonials: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Play Play Play Play Play Play Previous Next Spanish Testimonial What does an endoscopic carpal tunnel release look like ? https://youtu.be/zoNedgJrBgg?si=91oo5a7oLOwmb166 Endoscopic carpal tunnel release (ECTR) and open carpal tunnel release (OCTR) are two surgical techniques used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), a condition characterized by compression of the median nerve in the wrist. While both procedures can effectively alleviate CTS symptoms, ECTR has several advantages that may make it a preferred option for some patients. Here are some key points to educate patients on why ECTR may be considered better than OCTR in certain situations: Smaller Incision: ECTR involves making a small incision, typically less than an inch in length, at the base of the palm. In contrast, OCTR requires a larger incision, often up to two inches long. The smaller incision in ECTR results in less tissue disruption, reduced scarring, and a potentially quicker recovery. Faster Recovery: Due to the smaller incision and less trauma to surrounding tissues, ECTR usually leads to a quicker recovery compared to OCTR. Patients can typically resume their normal activities and return to work sooner. Less Pain: Patients undergoing ECTR often report less postoperative pain compared to OCTR. This can contribute to a more comfortable and faster recovery period. Improved Cosmesis: The smaller incision in ECTR typically results in a more cosmetically pleasing scar that is less noticeable compared to the longer scar associated with OCTR. Minimal Scarring: The incision in ECTR is usually located along natural creases in the palm, making it less noticeable and more aesthetically appealing. This can be particularly important for patients concerned about the appearance of their hands. Reduced Risk of Infection: Smaller incisions in ECTR may also reduce the risk of postoperative infection when compared to OCTR. Minimal Discomfort: ECTR is often performed under local anesthesia, allowing patients to remain awake during the procedure. This can be more comfortable for patients who prefer not to be under general anesthesia.   Hand Education

Carpal Tunnel Release using WAVR

Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release Paired with Virtual Reality Warning: Viewer discretion is advised, content is intended for medical education. https://vimeo.com/861031050?share=copy 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): 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. Read more about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome More Testimonials:

After Osteoporosis Surgery and Treatment – Mr. Longoria Now Exercises Muscle & Bones

After Osteoporosis Surgery and Treatment – Mr. Longoria Now Exercises Muscle & Bones Osteoporosis treatment and surgery: Mr. Longoria is a gifted toymaker by profession, nearly ending his career after a fall from a ladder shattered both wrists. Simultaneous volar plate fixation via open surgery to wrists was performed allowing him to go back to his trade. One was so complex that a revision surgery was needed some weeks later. However, JL went on to not only regain full use of his hands, as seen here, but he embarked on a fitness program and got in much better shape than he was in before. Despite titanium plates in both wrists, he can now do more pushups and bench press much more weight than before the surgery. This indicates that even with a complex injury, a motivated patient can get back to normal if the initial surgery is correctly done. The importance of a specialist cannot be underestimated.
