Steps to take before the treatment
Our doctors will prepare you thoroughly for the surgical process and will ensure you are in a good health to undergo the treatment.
What happens during the treatment?
Decompression of the nerve through surgery is a standard procedure. This is an open surgery which requires general anaesthesia. It involves a skin incision of 5 cm, in order to open the carpal tunnel from its tip. The nerve is then decompressed, and a dressing is done to heal the surgical wound, after the stitches.
After the surgery
After the surgery, your doctors at Medanta will recommend light movement of the elbow, hand, and fingers. However, it should be kept in motion. You may require an overnight stay in the hospital and might have to visit the hospital a few times to monitor the recovery.
