What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)?
Affecting more than 12 million people, CTS can cause pain, numbness and tingling in the hand and arm. It occurs when the median nerve, one of the major nerves in the hand, is compressed as it travels through the carpal tunnel in the wrist.

Traditional Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery
CTS may be treated surgically through a procedure called carpal tunnel release (CTR), which relieves pressure on the median nerve by cutting the transverse carpal ligament. Traditional CTR procedures can remedy the condition, but may result in large and sometimes painful scars, ongoing palm pain, and a long road to recovery.
