Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release (ECTR) 

Carpal tunnel syndrome (canalis carpi syndrome) is a condition caused by a narrowing of the space for the median nerve in the wrist.Patients experience various symptoms from pain to tingling and a change in sensitivity in their thumb, forefinger and middle finger.

At Canadian Medical, we can offer our patients a minimally invasive modern treatment method for carpal tunnel syndrome. The method is based on the surgical alteration of the carpal tunnel using endoscopic instruments from a single (uniportal) skin entrance. This procedure reduces postoperative pain to a minimum in comparison to classic surgical techniques, producing a smaller incision at forearm and palm border. The skin heals much better and the palm can be used much earlier than with any other surgery  (open or other endoscopic procedures). The patient can return to normal activities much earlier, and in addition, the percentage of permanent postoperative consequences (less numbness or burning in the palm of the hand) is greatly reduced.

At Canadian Medical, we use state-of-the-art surgical instruments: SmartRelease (C) endoscopic release system from MicroAire, optics from Storz.
