Verified Satisfaction Rate

The carpal tunnel operation is performed under a local anaesthetic and involves opening the roof of the tunnel to reduce the pressure on the nerve. Afterward, the site of the operation will be covered by a small adhesive dressing. We typically use soluble stitches which dissolve or fall out within a week or two. However, in some cases traditional stitches are required, where we will advise that the stitches in your hand need to be removed at our clinic 10-14 days after the operation.
