Carpal Tunnel Surgery
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the major nerve of the hand is squeezed or compressed as it passes through the carpal tunnel in your wrist. Many carpal tunnel cases can be treated without surgery, but more severe cases might require surgery. Carpal tunnel release surgery eases the compression on your nerves in the carpal tunnel.
Trigger finger occurs when the tissue inside your finger or thumb becomes inflamed causing your finger to not bend and straighten normally. Mild cases can be treated without surgery. If the problem is severe, surgery may be needed.
A fractured bone starts to heal on its own right away. But a treatment called reduction may help your wrist heal better. Reduction is a process that repositions your bones with the goal of getting them as close as possible to how they were before the break.
