Conditions & Diagnosis

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome is pain radiating into the hand due to a pinched median nerve at the wrist, (carpus). It is usually treated surgically by an operation (carpal tunnel release) to divide a ligament which provides more room in the carpal tunnel.

Dr Moloney’s preference is to do this operation through a longitudinal incision about 2cm in length so that the nerve can be adequately visualised and decompressed.
