Also known as Carpal Tunnel Decompression Surgery, the procedure is used for treating Carpal Runnel Syndrome. The condition is characterized by compression or increased pressure at the median nerve of the carpal tunnel which passes through the wrists. Carpal tunnel surgery is suggested in case of persistent pain the first three digits (thumb, index as well as middle finger) and ring finger (towards the thumb side). The pain is mostly accompanied by a feeling of numbness or loss of sensation, and tingling sensation. The surgery is very common with more than 500,000 surgeries being performed worldwide annually. On an average, the carpal tunnel surgery cost may vary from below $1000 to above $3979, as it depends on a number of factors. 

What is Carpal Tunnel Release?

The procedure is performed only if prolonged conventional treatments and physical therapies go ineffective. The approach of the procedure is to split up the transverse carpal ligaments from that of the volar antebrachial fascia (towards the distal end). The transverse ligament forms the canopy over the carpal tunnel and is primarily the reason for compression of nerve root. Hence, to decompress the area and relieve the candidate from further pain, the separation or release or distension of the ligament is imperative. 

Ideal Candidate for Carpal Tunnel Release

Carpal tunnel surgery is one of the most common procedures performed all across the world. However, one must decide on the candidacy to determine eligibility for the procedure. Thus, one can be an ideal candidate if:

  • The reported pain has been persistent for more than six to nine months. This is because, in most cases, the pain can be cured through prolonged treatment with conventional medicines. 
  • The pain has been effective even after usage of cast or suitable splint
  • The condition is affecting daily activities 

Factors Affecting the Cost of Carpal Tunnel Release

The factors that widely affect the carpal tunnel surgery cost are:

  • Extent of nerve damage incurred 
  • Approach of the procedure
  • Country where the procedure is being performed
  • Type of healthcare facilities availed.
