Ultrasound Guided Carpal Tunnel Release
Dr. Demetrio Aguila is excited to be the first doctor in Nebraska to offer patients Ultrasound Guided Carpal Tunnel Release (USCTR). This innovative procedure can be done in the office, without general anesthesia and zero down time. In fact, the first patient in Nebraska to undergo USCTR is a nurse in Dr. Aguila’s office. The procedure was so easy and painless that she was able to go back to work immediately and be involved in the very next case! Watch her story and learn more about this cutting-edge option for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
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.
A New Way to Treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome for Faster Recovery
Now there’s a proven way to get rapid relief from carpal tunnel pain and return quickly to normal activities.
