Safe. Effective. Proven.
HSST physicians Dr. Randolph A. Lopez and Dr. Joseph Dang, together with other colleagues, have published a landmark paper regarding the Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release.
- The paper contains the most cases published by any physician on the subject, totaling 14,722 cases studied.
- The research for this paper took place over a 12 year period, from 1993 to 2005.
- The results of this paper show that out of the 14,722 patients who underwent Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release procedures only 11 patients (0.07%) required conversion to an open carpal tunnel release procedure.
- This is a landmark publication that proves that the Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release procedure defines a new paradigm in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Also known as the Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release, this no-stitch procedure is performed through a small incision on the wrist with the use of endoscopes.
A small cut is done in the palm, local anesthesia is required for the procedure
The process is done endoscopically, using a small camera to guide the procedure
The ligament is cut and the pressure is relieved
