Carpal Tunnel


At LivingCare, we know how debilitating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be. 

That's why we offer Private Carpal Tunnel Surgery in Leeds without the typical waiting list you may experience at your local hospital.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve, a main nerve that runs from your forearm into the palm of the hand, in the wrist as it passes through the carpal tunnel - A ligament in the hand.


Symptoms include:

  • Weakness of the thumb

  • Tingling fingers or/and thumb

  • Numbness of the hand

  • Difficulty in gripping or clumsiness i.e. dropping things regularly

Carpal tunnel release, also known as carpal tunnel decompression, is typically performed at our purpose built Thorpe Park Clinic. It takes around thirty minutes and is performed under local anaesthetic. You will return home the same day as your surgery, with no overnight stay required.

During surgery,  your consultant will make a small incision approximately 4-5cm long is made at the bottom of the palm of your hand. The carpal ligament which covers the carpal tunnel is then cut to relieve the pressure on the median nerve and other local structures in this area of your wrist. 

This surgery aims to relieve or improve your symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome which include: numbness, paint and tinging in your hand, as well as returning the function of your hand to normal.
