Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release

Endoscopic carpal tunnel release is the process of using an endoscope (see definition above) to perform a carpal tunnel release procedure in a more minimally invasive manner than traditional carpal tunnel surgery.

What happens if you don’t treat carpal tunnel syndrome?

Once diagnosed, if left untreated or with treatment that is not working, it is unclear how carpal tunnel syndrome will progress. It is felt that the syndrome will likely stay the same or progress in severity. It is possible that CTS will reverse on its own, but the best advice it to seek consultation by a specialist to make sure there is not something other than CTS present.
