Anthony Cheng - Hand & Wrist Surgery, & Peripheral Nerve Injuries

Private Service

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A pinched nerve in the wrist that causes tingling, numbness and pain in your hand may require surgery to make more room for the nerve.

Surgery involves making an incision (cut) from the middle of the palm of your hand to your wrist. Tissue that is pressing on the nerve is then cut to release the pressure.

This operation is usually performed under local anaesthetic (the area being treated is numb but you are awake).
