Carpal Tunnel and Cubital Tunnel Release in Frisco, TX

What are Carpal and Cubital Tunnel Release Treatments?

Carpal and cubital tunnel release surgery could be necessary for patients with irreversible nerve damage from natural causes, injury, or overuse. These two painful nerve conditions are very similar but involve the entrapment of different nerves within the arm. Cubital tunnel syndrome radiates pain from the elbow when the ulnar nerve needs treatment. Carpal tunnel syndrome is felt in the wrists and hands as sharp, shooting pains signaled from an impaired median nerve. Our experienced board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons can identify and treat both conditions. Some of the other symptoms and indicators of carpal or cubital syndrome are:

  • Pain felt in the arm, elbow, wrist, hand, or thumb, or fingers in one or both upper limbs
  • Loss of muscle control and strength
  • The inability to squeeze the hand into a fist
  • Throbbing pain, even at rest
  • Numbness or tingling sensations in the arm, hand, fingers, or thumb

Once nerve damage from these conditions has progressed to chronic pain, a tunnel release surgery may be warranted. We provide safe, effective carpal and cubital tunnel release surgery (ulnar nerve transposition) at Preston Surgery Center.

Carpal & Cubital Tunnel FAQ

What does carpal or cubital tunnel syndrome feel like?

Many of our patients describe these conditions as causing pain, tingling, weakness, or a loss of sensation. These feelings tend to be most prominent after the elbow has been bent for a prolonged period of time, which can make people feel weak and/or clumsy.

Can carpal or cubital tunnel syndrome be treated?

These conditions can be treated in a variety of ways. Our staff will usually recommend starting with a light form of treatment, such as a brace, before recommending surgery or another more serious method. Typically, these treatments are able to greatly restore function to the affected wrist.

What will happen if carpal or cubital tunnel syndrome is left untreated?

In many cases, carpal and cubital tunnel syndromes can lead to a weak, uncoordinated feeling in the wrist, as well as permanent nerve damage if left untreated. Fortunately, beginning treatment for these conditions is incredibly simple and should eventually alleviate most, if not all, discomfort in the area.
