WHAT IS CARPAL TUNNEL?
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a hand and arm condition causing pain, numbness, and other symptoms. It is, quite simply, a pinched nerve in the wrist. It is one of the most common soft tissue pathologist, affecting 0.6-2% of the population.
WHAT IS THE NO STITCH PROCEDURE?

The Hand Surgery Specialists of Texas have created the “No Stitch” Procedure to treat your Carpal Tunnel issues and numb fingers in Houston, with a simple and quick minimally invasive procedure.
TRADITIONAL CARPAL TUNNEL RELEASE VS NO STITCH
There are several ways to perform a carpal tunnel release, the most common being the traditional or old school, open carpal tunnel release, where an incision either the full length or part of the length of the carpal tunnel is made, versus the endoscope technique, where you bypass incising skin, and only cut the deeper ligament causing pressure in the hand, without additional damage to other layers. This technique requires a more advanced, and technical approach, using video cameras.
NO STITCH RECOVERY TIME
Due to its minimally invasive nature, the wounds heal in about a week. Patients may feel some soreness in their palm post-op. Most patients do not require therapy and most rehab can be done from home.
No Stitch means quicker recovery, less pain, and less time healing. Typically patients can return back to work sooner than with the traditional procedure. Most patients only wear a bandage for a week. Patients are typically able to resume normal activities thereafter, with unlimited restrictions.
