Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that affects the hand, and carpal tunnel treatment can ultimately include carpal tunnel release surgery. Without carpal tunnel treatment, the symptoms tend to progress, eventually leading to constant numbness in the hand and occasionally to loss of strength in the hand.

Carpal tunnel is diagnosed by its typical carpal tunnel symptoms in conjunction with an examination by a physician such as Dr. Stephen Helgemo. Numbness in the hand and tingling involving the thumb, index and middle finger are the most common symptoms seen with carpal tunnel syndrome. Eventually a sufferer may experience extreme hand pain.

The use of a splint, anti-inflammatory medicines (i.e. Advil) or a cortisone injection are the most reliable non-surgical carpal tunnel treatments. If the patient doesn’t receive carpal tunnel relief, carpal tunnel surgery recommended. The goal of carpal tunnel treatment is to relieve the pressure on the nerve.  Dr. Helgemo’s preferred method is endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery. The minimally-invasive nature of this procedure along with Dr. Helgemo’s extensive experience (over 7,000 cases) have led to excellent results with minimal risks. According recent AHCA data, Dr. Helgemo is Florida’s leading endoscopic carpal tunnel surgeon.
