Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Imagine a life where everyday activities, like typing, writing, or even holding a cup of coffee, become a painful struggle. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that affects thousands of individuals, hindering their ability to perform simple tasks. But worry not, because at Dr Foiz Ahmed, we have the solution to restore your freedom.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs through a narrow passage in your wrist called the carpal tunnel, becomes compressed or squeezed. This compression leads to a variety of symptoms, including numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and fingers.

Our Expert Approach
At Dr Foiz Ahmed, we take a comprehensive approach to treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Led by our esteemed Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Mr. Foiz Ahmed, our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality care.

During a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome procedure, our experienced surgeon carefully releases the pressure on the median nerve by cutting the transverse carpal ligament. This surgical intervention not only relieves your symptoms but also promotes optimal hand function and restores your quality of life.

The Road to Recovery
Following the procedure, you can expect a relatively short recovery period. Most patients typically spend one night in the hospital, allowing our medical experts to closely monitor your progress. While you may need to take two weeks off from work, it’s a small price to pay for a lifetime of pain-free hands.

We prioritize your post-operative care, ensuring you have the best possible outcome. You’ll be provided with a compression garment to wear for six weeks, which aids in reducing swelling and promoting healing. It’s important to note that it may take up to 18 months for your hand to fully settle and for you to experience the complete benefits of the procedure.
