Living with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) can be mentally and physically exhausting. The constant or intermittent wrist pain, the feeling of numbness or tingling on certain fingers, the nighttime pain that disrupts sleep and leaves you tired in the morning; all of these symptoms can make your life considerably less enjoyable and can even make you quit certain activities you enjoy, like knitting, riding a motorcycle, etc.
So when it comes to treating your CTS, you probably want to get rid of it as quickly and efficiently as possible. At the Hand Surgery Specialists of Texas, our hand surgeons excel at treating CTS and here’s why:
The No-Stitch Carpal Tunnel Release Technique
The No-Stitch carpal tunnel release technique is the procedure of choice among hand surgeons at the Hand Surgery Specialists of Texas. This procedure is performed through a small incision on the wrist and uses endoscopes to release the pressure inside the carpal tunnel.
How is the No-Stitch technique different from the traditional open carpal tunnel release?
The No-Stitch technique is minimally invasive, takes less than 10 minutes to be performed, and requires no stitches, which means that it won’t leave a scar! This carpal tunnel release technique has a 98% success rate and you can expect to be able to use your hand the same day as the procedure. In addition, most people who have this procedure stop feeling nighttime pain that same night.
Our Hand Surgeons Have Proven Experience in Treating CTS with the No-Stitch Technique
The hand surgeons at the Hand Surgery Specialists of Texas have collectively performed over 1,000 No-Stitch procedures. In fact, our very own Dr. Randolph Lopez and Dr. Joseph Dang, along with other colleagues, have published a landmark research paper regarding the No-Stitch technique. This research paper contains the most cases published by any physician on the subject with a total of 14,722 cases studied over the course of 12 years. The results of this research paper show that out of the 14,722 patients who underwent the No-Stitch procedure, only 11 of them required further treatment for their carpal tunnel syndrome. Gotta love those numbers!
We Offer True Convenience All in One Place
At the Hand Surgery Specialists of Texas, one of our main goals is to make everything as convenient as possible for our patients. With that in mind, we have established multiple hand care centers across the Houston area and in Dallas, so that our patients never have to travel too far to reach us. We also do all of our testing in house, which means our patients won’t need to go somewhere else to get their x-rays or other tests done. In addition, if our patient needs surgery, we can usually schedule that procedure for the next day or even the same day of the consultation. Finally, we offer physical therapy in house as well, which means we’ll stay with you through the healing process until you are 100% better!
We Offer Individualized Treatments
You are 1 in 7 billion and we want to treat you as such. We never treat our patients with one cookie-cutter course of treatment because we understand that each person is unique and deserves a course of treatment that focuses on their individual problems, body type, lifestyle, etc. Our hand surgeons take all your unique relevant factors into account when coming up with a treatment plan that works for you, whether that be surgical treatments, non-surgical treatments, or a combination of both.
