Successful Carpal Tunnel Treatment
Carpal Tunnel Treatment Program
- Ultrasound Guided Approach
- Nerve Release Techniques
Carpal tunnel syndrome can be debilitating. Today, we did a two year follow-up. We treated this patient who had carpal tunnel syndrome where she developed scar tissue around the median nerve of the left-hand, post-surgery.
Pain After Surgery
But this patient was still symptomatic after the surgery with numbness, tingling, and pain.
Repeat Surgery Avoided
Rather than repeating the surgery, which could cause more scar tissue, and cutting the skin by making an incision… we did an ultrasound guided percutaneous technique where the ultrasound was our eyes and we were able to use a cutting needle. We dissected the scar tissue away from the nerve all the way from above the wrist down to the middle of the palm.
Today is approaching her two-year anniversary and the procedure was successful. The patient continues to be symptom free. Of note, in our experience 75% of nerve entrapment syndromes can be treated with this technique prior to open surgery as well.
We give this case study to show an example of treatment alternatives for a patient who had failed carpal tunnel surgery or any nerve surgery that was not successful.

Dr. Magaziner performs a carpal tunnel release of the nerve thru an ultrasound guided approach where no skin cutting is needed and therefore no unsightly scar.

Magaziner has a high rate of success treating patients, there is no guarantee of a positive outcome given the variables relative to each case and individual being treated.
