Providing Quality Orthopaedic Care
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition which produces symptoms including tingling, numbness, pain and loss of strength in the hand and fingers. Carpal Tunnel release is a common procedure performed to release the median nerve. A small surgical cut is made near the palm of the hand to release this nerve and sutures are used to close the wound. These usually stay in place for 7-10 days post surgery and are removed at your post-operative visit. Dr Nimon routinely performs this procedure under local anaesthetic which has several benefits including minimal risk, quicker recovery time and also reduces costs associated with having general anaesthesia.
A Ganglion cyst arises out of a joint and more frequently develops on the back of the wrist. These cysts often require surgical intervention if they interfere with nerves as they produce symptoms similar to carpal tunnel including numbness, tingling and loss of strength. Similarly to a carpal tunnel release, the cyst is excised and sutures are placed which are usually removed 7-10 days post surgery at your post-operative appointment.
