At Spire Methley Park Hospital, we carry out carpal tunnel release surgery using clinically proven techniques. The procedure eases the pain and numbness in your hand caused by carpal tunnel syndrome.

To relieve pressure on your median nerve, your surgeon will cut the ligament that runs across the front of your wrist bones. Pressure on the median nerve is caused by swelling inside your wrist and causes carpal tunnel syndrome.

At Spire Methley Park, our consultants have extensive experience of performing carpal tunnel release surgery in our clean, modern facilities.

Preparing for carpal tunnel surgery at Spire Methley Park

Getting here

We're on Methley Lane (the A639) - approximately 1.5 miles from junction 30 of the M62. The hospital is well served by rail stations with Castleford station three miles away, Wakefield seven miles away and Leeds station 10 miles away.

You’ll have free on-site parking for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

You’ll be able to have your first appointment within a few days of your enquiry. Your surgeon will examine your wrist, ask about your symptoms and discuss your medical history. They may also talk about other treatments you could try before deciding on surgery if you haven’t already, such as painkillers and wrist splints.

Your consultant will tell you more about what carpal tunnel surgery involves, including:

  • Tests you may need beforehand such as a nerve conduction test or an ultrasound scan
  • What the procedure involves
  • The anaesthetic (which is usually local)
  • Risks and complications of surgery

Carpal tunnel surgery: your procedure

The operation takes around 20 minutes and you’ll be able to go home on the same day.

When you arrive for surgery:

  • You’ll meet your surgical team and anaesthetist
  • You’ll have a local anaesthetic (so you’ll be awake but won’t feel any pain)
  • Your surgeon will make a small incision and then cut through the ligament that lies across the front of your wrist – they’ll use the technique you agreed during your consultation

Carpal tunnel surgery: your recovery

Everyone’s different, so how long it takes to recover from your surgery will depend on your general health and how severe your carpal tunnel syndrome is.

Your consultant will be able to tell you more about your expected recovery, but here’s a typical recovery timeline for carpal tunnel surgery:
