Frequently Asked Questions

When is carpal tunnel surgery, trigger finger surgery, or other surgical intervention typically necessary?

Carpal tunnel surgery or trigger finger surgery, along with other surgical interventions, are typically necessary when conservative treatments fail to alleviate symptoms or when the condition progresses to a point where surgical intervention becomes the most viable option. It is always best to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the appropriate course of action for individual cases.

What can I expect during a carpal tunnel syndrome test?

During a carpal tunnel syndrome test, you can expect the healthcare provider to assess your hand and wrist by performing various diagnostic procedures. These may include physical examinations, assessing your medical history, conducting nerve conduction studies, and possibly imaging tests like an ultrasound.

The purpose is to evaluate the function of your nerves and identify any potential signs of carpal tunnel syndrome. It's important to consult with a medical professional for accurate information tailored to your specific situation.
