Minimally Invasive Carpal Tunnel Treatment that Works
Local Anesthetic – Small Incision – Bandaid
Minimally Invasive Carpal Tunnel Treatment
Minimally invasive carpal tunnel treatment refers to the surgical technique employing the smallest incision possible. It is performed in 10 min, under local anesthesia, allowing the return to work the same day for most patients with minimal post-operative restrictions.
This technique involves a single, 1 to 1.5 cm (0.4 to 0.6 inch) incision and utilizes special surgical instruments to cut the transverse carpal ligament. This technique has the advantages of both open carpal tunnel surgery and endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery.

The average time from the moment you enter the procedure room and walk out is 10 min. You even get to choose music to listen to during the procedure.
No General Anesthesia
Dr. Izadi will perform your carpal tunnel release under a local anesthetic. You don’t have to fast, and you can drive yourself to and from the hospital.
One Small Cut and a Bandaid
One small incision means faster healing and recovery. You can resume your daily activities with minimal restrictions.
No anesthesiologist, medical clearance tests, and after-surgery hospitalization significantly lower your medical costs.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is the result of a compressed median nerve at the wrist. The most common symptoms of median nerve compression include hand tingling, numbness, and pain. In severe cases, hand muscles by the thumb atrophy, causing hand weakness and difficulty grasping objects.
If you are experiencing any symptoms, you don’t want to wait for them to get worse in order to be evaluated by an orthopedic hand surgeon. The longer you wait, the more you risk permanent nerve damage. I can assess the severity of your median nerve compression and evaluate your carpal tunnel syndrome. Afterward, I can recommend an appropriate treatment plan tailored to your needs.
I am deeply committed to caring for my patients as I would care for my family. In my practice, patient care and satisfaction are of utmost importance. I pride myself on an unparalleled attentiveness to my patients and the art of orthopedic hand surgery. Thank you for visiting my website, and I look forward to meeting you.
