Procedures offered for carpal tunnel surgery at Spire Yale

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

Our consultants typically offer open release surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome. During surgery, your consultant will make an incision (cut) so they can see inside your wrist and cut the transverse carpal ligament.

Preparing for carpal tunnel surgery at Spire Yale

Getting here

The hospital is a few minutes by taxi from Wrexham General and Wrexham Central stations, and approximately 25 minutes by taxi from Chester station.

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:
