Looking for a Cure for Carpal Tunnel?

Turn to Atlanta Hand Specialist for the relief you need!

When you need a cure for carpal tunnel, schedule an appointment with Atlanta Hand Specialist. Dr. Patel, a board certified general surgeon and hand surgeon, can relieve carpal tunnel pain permanently.

Although milder cases of carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated by changing hand-use patterns, using splints or utilizing steroid injections, more serious cases often require surgery. Dr. Patel can provide a cure for carpal tunnel by cutting the ligament that forms the top of the tunnel on the palm side, making more room for the nerve. The goal is to decrease the pressure on the nerve, which will relieve carpal tunnel pain.

By undergoing a surgical cure for carpal tunnel, you will no longer need to struggle with:

  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Pain in the arm, hand and fingers

Dr. Patel will take a detailed history of your medical conditions including how your hands have been used and whether you have experienced any prior injuries before recommending surgery. It is not an appropriate cure for carpal tunnel in all patients, and we prefer to exhaust less invasive treatment options first.

Surgery does not provide an immediate cure for carpal tunnel. Soreness around the incision may last for several weeks or months, and it may take time for the tingling sensation to disappear. It may also take several months for the strength in your hand to return to normal. Yet patients who have undergone the surgery report a complete recovery from carpal tunnel syndrome.

Call (770) 333-7888 to find out if a surgical cure for carpal tunnel is right for you. We have offices in Smyrna, Douglasville, and Marietta.
