The Orthopedics Department provides non-surgical and surgical treatment options for rheumatoid and degenerative arthritis. Treatment plans depend on the specifics and severity of each patient’s condition. In severe instances, total joint replacement surgery may be necessary.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Using minimally invasive techniques, orthopedic surgeons can perform endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery with reduced scarring and recovery time. The procedure requires only a half-inch incision to the wrist. A splint is applied to the wrist after surgery, and the patient is discharged and allowed to go home. Typically within a week, the splint is removed, a temporary wrist splint is applied and hand rehabilitation begins.
