How does the Carpal Tunnel Clinic operate?

If a nerve conduction test is required a basic test can be performed in the outpatients department, however if this test is inconclusive a more detailed nerve conduction study may be required by a neurphysiologist.
What happens if I require surgery?
If surgery is required, you will be offered the next available appointment. Your consultant will provide you with detailed personalised advice regarding your surgery. A report will be sent to your GP following your consultation giving a summary of findings and full recommendations.
How much does it cost?
The initial diagnostics will cost between £470 and £530. This includes the outpatient fee for the consultant and your nerve conduction test (if applicable).
If you require surgery there will be an additional fee of £1,445. This includes the surgeon’s fee, the hospital day case costs and a follow up consultation fee.
