Carpal Tunnel Surgery Reno NVCarpal Tunnel Surgery for Patients in Reno, NV

Carpal tunnel surgery is an option for patients in Reno, Nevada thanks to Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic’s team of highly skilled orthopedic surgeons, who can help to determine your best treatment options, including whether you may be a candidate for this procedure.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition that often impacts the sufferer’s daily life. It occurs when the carpal tunnel, which connects your forearm to your hand, becomes compressed. This narrow passageway is made up of bones, tendons, and ligaments, and also contains the median nerve.  When the carpal tunnel decreases in size, it places pressure on the median nerve, causing pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness in the affected hand and arm.

A variety of factors can lead to compression around the carpal tunnel, including the following:

  • Repetitive hand or wrist movements
  • Wrist injuries
  • Fluid retention (common in pregnancy and menopause)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Kidney failure
  • Diabetes

Because repetitive hand and wrist movements are known to cause carpal tunnel syndrome, this condition is especially common among people who work in an office and have to type or use a computer mouse on a daily basis.

Many cases of carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated using nonsurgical methods including icing, splinting, nerve-gliding exercises, and corticosteroid injections. For those patients with more severe cases, however, Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic also offers relief through carpal tunnel surgery.

The orthopedic surgeons at our Reno, NV location have extensive experience with carpal tunnel surgery. By dividing the swollen ligament, we can attempt to increase the size of the carpal tunnel and create a “release,” thereby relieving pressure on the nerve that is causing pain. This procedure can often be done on an outpatient basis, meaning that patients may not require an overnight stay at the hospital.

If you are experiencing the above symptoms and suspect that you may require carpal tunnel surgery, please contact Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic’s Reno, NV location so that we may help you determine your best course of treatment moving forward.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"
