Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition of the hand that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and the thumb side of the ring finger. It often occurs due to repetitive movements that pressurize the median nerve, which controls the movement and feeling of the thumb and most of the fingers. Women are at higher risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome. The ratio of female to male with the condition is 3:1.

Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause significant distress. At TMSC, our board certified plastic surgeons specialize in treating such conditions in a safe and efficient manner.

The median nerve—a nerve that is responsible for controlling movement and feeling in the thumb and all the fingers except the pinky—runs through the arm and passes through a passageway (the carpal tunnel) located in the wrist, and ends in your hand. When there is pressure on the median nerve, it results in carpal tunnel syndrome.

More often than not, people are unsure of what caused their carpal tunnel syndrome. It can stem from:

  • Any repetitive motions, including typing (Especially doing things with your hands situated lower than your wrists while doing repetitive motions of any kind)
  • Conditions such as hypothyroidism, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes
  • Pregnancy

TMSC conducts surgical treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. Following failure of splinting, surgical release of the carpal tunnel is the mainstay treatment. An open carpal tunnel release is conducted, during which an approximately 2-inch incision is cut on the wrist. Then, the carpal tunnel ligament is cut in order to enlarge the carpal tunnel.

Our surgeons are highly trained and experienced professionals who care deeply about their patients. Rest assured all of our procedures are carried out with the utmost care, precision, regard for aesthetics, and in a safe environment.

Treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome is covered by OHIP.
