Surgical Team Perform Successful Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery in NJ
January 13, 2014 (Newswire) - Samra Plastic Surgery located in Holmdel, NJ is proud to announce that lead surgeon Dr. Salem Samra and his team successfully performed the first endoscopic carpal tunnel release in the history of Bayshore Community Hospital recently.
Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release (ECTR) surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used for treating carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a medical condition that causes numbness, pain, and discomfort in the hand, afflicting an estimated 75 million people globally. If left untreated, CTS can lead to irreversible nerve damage and muscle atrophy in the hand.
The two most common surgical treatments are: Open Surgery and Endoscopic Surgery. Both procedures are effective, but Endoscopic Surgery results in faster recovery time, less post-operative pain and a smaller, less-noticeable scar.
During single-portal Endoscopic Surgery, a small incision is made in the crease of the wrist, where the surgeon inserts a small camera mounted to a surgical instrument called a SmartRelease™ ECTR. This device allows the surgeon to see inside the carpal tunnel using a video monitor. The surgeon then precisely cuts the ligament using a retractable blade within the SmartRelease™ ECTR, without opening the entire palm. Once the ligament is fully released, the blade is retracted, the instrument is withdrawn and the small incision is sutured and dressed.
Endoscopic Surgery is highly effective and has been used for more than 20 years. It results in less post-operative pain, a minimal scar concealed by a wrist crease, and generally allows patients to resume some normal activities in a short period of time.
