Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a frequent nerve entrapment that is common in women over 40 years of age, but it can be more common. Pressure on the nerve causes pain, numbness and a tingling sensation in the hands and fingers. At KABERA, we’re proud to work with the leading orthopedic, neurosurgical and peripheral nerve expert who are experienced in managing and treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as well as other disorders of hands and wrist with ease.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment at KABERA

1. CTS treatment without surgery

At KABERA, we will recommend the best treatment for your CTS symptoms and successful, less invasive options are:

  • Oral painkillers and wearing a wrist splint
  • Steroid injections
  • Physiotherapy or hand therapy
2. Carpal Tunnel Decompression Surgery

Specialist surgeons at KABERA can also offer carpal tunnel decompression surgery as an option to relieve CTS symptoms. This is usually performed under local anaesthetic as a day case procedure. This procedure is associated with some very low risks however, your surgeon will discuss these in detail with you during your consultation.


You can go home on the same day as surgery. The anaesthetic should keep working for the following 12 hours and you will be given oral painkillers to take for the first few days. You will be given exercises to do once at home and will be advised to keep the hand raised as much as possible in the first three days to prevent swelling. Your dressings will be reduced to a simple dressing following two days. Sutures are typically removed at 12-14 days. Symptoms should improve within a week but may not be completely better until about 3-6 months. Gripping, leaning and heavy lifting may be uncomfortable during this healing period.
