What can Cause Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Many people believe that carpal tunnel is caused from repetitive movements of the wrist and hand such as writing and typing. However, there is little data to back up this belief. Carpal tunnel has been shown to be caused from many factors, including the following:

  • Trauma or injury to the wrist
  • Over activity of pituitary gland
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Fluid retention during pregnancy/menopause

How is Carpal Tunnel Surgery in Las Vegas Performed?

There are various methods for carpal tunnel surgery, depending on your personal anatomy and the severity of your case. The three most common techniques for surgery are:

  • Open Release Surgery: Dr. Williams will cut the carpal ligament free from the medial nerve to
    relieve the pressure.
  • Mini Open Approach: in this approach, the incision is only an inch and Dr. Williams can still have a
    direct view.
  • Endoscopic: two small incisions are made so a camera can be used to cut the proper ligament.
